The core curriculum used by Sanctuary Christian Academy Agnus Dei is written from an evangelical Christian perspective. Some of the publishers presently being used include: ACE materials (Accelerated Christian Education), Alpha and Omega Publications, Harcourt, Scott Foresman, McMillan, A Beka, Lifeway, God's World Magazine, and various Christian biographies and novels. A classical approach to education is also embraced including the teaching of Latin and classical history and culture in a manner that enhances the student’s concept of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness.
Music & Fine Arts Program
At Sanctuary Christian Academy Agnus Dei, all students are required to study the basics of music in preparation for a fulfilling life of ministry to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. All students study the piano during their entire stay at the school. However, other optional instruments are also available for study such as the Guitar, Violin, Mandolin, and Tambourine. Students are expected to engage in conscientious practice, and to participate in annual recitals and concerts given by the Academy.
Sanctuary Christian Academy Agnus Dei is blessed to have teachers and aides from a multiplicity of backgrounds, both nationally and internationally. The core faculty is made up of teachers who have a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree, as well as years of experience in the teaching profession. Teacher aides are also a welcome part of the teaching staff.
Religious workers may be hired from time to time to fulfill duties as Special Purpose Educators, Special Purpose Counselors, or Special Purpose Ministerial Assistants, in fulfillment of the overall vision of the Academy, upon the recommendation and approval of the governing Board of the Area Evangelism Ministries International, Inc.
Grades are recorded numerically and placed on report cards and transcripts as numerical grades. Letter grades are not assigned by our school. Tests count no more than one-third of the quarter grade. The remainder of the grade is comprised of homework, daily class participation, special projects, etc. A grade below 70 is considered to be failing. Students with averages below 70 are placed on academic probation. The letter “I” is used to indicate an incomplete grade. This usually is given because of excused absences, and the teacher is still waiting for some assignment before posting grades. All work should be made up within three (3) weeks, unless special arrangements have been made with the school administration.
The grading system for Sanctuary Christian Academy Agnus Dei is as follows:
A = 93 - 100 4
B = 85 - 92 3
C = 77 - 84 2
D = 70 - 76 1
F = Below 70 0
Every year, in June, Sanctuary Christian Academy Agnus Dei sponsors a missions program for students who come on scholarship. This is an opportunity to give back a little of what the Lord has given as they share with people in needy areas on both sides of the border. During the month of missions, activities include going out in groups to serve churches and pastors. It is also customary to travel as an entire school to churches both in Texas and elsewhere in the north to conduct presentations of the Gospel in the unique manner of the Academy students.
