Both schools have been open since 1998, and there are currently 80 students on their combines rosters.
The students learn using the Abeka Book curriculum, which is a traditional curriculum that has been helpful on standardized tests and ACT/SAT. This curriculum starts in the infant class, the toddlers focus on early literacy and phonics. The daycare and grade school are Christian based learning environment. The students in 1st to 6th grade learn biology, physics and chemistry each quarter, each year based on their grade level. They have hands on labs, along with the regular requirements of language arts, math and reading. “The students at Children’s Technological Academy perform at two grade levels above their peers at other schools”, said Pastor Larry Jordan of Family Victory Fellowship.
The school offers small class sizes with a maximum of ten students per instructor, Special elective classes are also offered and range from art and music, to technology and entrepreneurship. “The entrepreneurship classes encourage students to own their own business by having them start with managing school stores, putting their money into the business and at the end of the year, the students receive a profit share. As they progress, the students have to market and create their own businesses by the time they graduate sixth grade” said Mary Donaldson, Program Director for Victory Learning Center and Children’s Technological Academy.
