First Assembly of God

Bosque Farms Christian Academy

 
  A ministry of First Assembly of God in Bosque Farms, NM 


OUR HISTORY:

Bosque Farms Christian Academy (BFCA) was started in 1979 as a ministry of First Assembly of God in Bosque Farms, New Mexico.  Since 1979, the Bible has always been the main textbook of this academy. Each student is required to memorize Scripture as part of their daily goals. This is important because Jesus taught that man does not live by bread alone but by the Word of God. This means that a Christian's life is not sustained merely by temporal things but by the eternal Word of God.  We are not ashamed of the Gospel.  We are not ashamed to lift up the name of Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the Savior of the World.  It has always been the goal of this Academy to train Christian youth of every ability in the highest principles of Christian leadership, self discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity, and good citizenship in light of these things.

OUR MISSION:

The mission of BFCA  is to provide a training center to teach students how to live according to God's principles, to be passionate followers of Christ, and to find and fulfill the destiny and purpose God has for their lives. 

OUR VISION:

The vision of BFCA is to affect our local community and ultimately the world by training young people in the ways of God, providing a strong academic foundation, and guiding them to find and fulfill their purpose in the Kingdom of God.

OUR CHALLENGE:

2 Timothy 2:15 "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."

OUR MOTTO:

God reigns! 

 

OUR CURRICULUM

The Four Keys to Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) Curriculum:

1. Individualized:


The A.C.E. Model adapts to the learning speed of your child. This is unlike the "Public School Model" where the group is lock-stepped regardless of the student’s academic abilities. The A.C.E. Model allows your child to progress independently through the curriculum and not as a group. The "Public School Model" holds back the faster learner and forces all the students forward regardless of their "learning gaps". Over a million alumni demonstrate that Individualized learning produces academic excellence.

2. Diagnosis:


The child is given a diagnostic test to determine current academic ability and clearly identifies any learning gaps within all subjects. For example, your child’s English grammar may be above his/her grade level. However their punctuation skills may be below grade level. Your child is then placed in curriculum at his/her academic performance grade level in each subject and the learning gaps are then addressed.

3. Goal Setting:


The Students learn through setting daily goals and are challenged by marking their achievement. This key to learning allows the child to visualize and plan daily progress. This unique discipline of A.C.E. places responsibility and accountability on the student for learning, thus establishing a lifetime appreciation for goal setting and achievement.

4. Mastery:


The Biblical value of excellence in all things we do is translated into mastering subject content. This is the foundation upon which all future learning is built. The A.C.E. Model reinforces honest achievement that results in advancement. Students must master a minimum of 80% of the material before advancing.

Our children spend the majority of their young lives in the classroom. Many Christian parents take advantage of the opportunities offered by a Christian school to help train their child up in the way that he or she should go (Proverbs 22:6).

It is exciting to know that there are 923 Assemblies of God/Association of Christian Teachers and Schools (ACTS) sponsored day schools and childcare centers within the United States. Christian teachers have approximately 1260 instructional contact hours per year in a day school and over 2,000 in a childcare center. This allows a tremendous amount of direct Christian discipleship and evangelism to occur in this school system.

Private education accounts for 118,296 students within Assemblies of God/ACTS schools. According to the most current statistics from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), approximately 10% of all U.S. students are educated in private schools. Between now and 2014, the number of students in private schools is expected to continue to increase by 5%.
