Accelerated Learning

Accelerated Learning looks different at each of our campuses. We recognize the importance of challenging students 和 offering opportunities to grow beyond the typical classroom setting. To learn more about what our Accelerated Learning programs look like, please select a campus.

 

Elementary School

Eastern Christian Elementary School addresses the learning 和 developmental differences of learners with gifts 和 talents by offering the 视野 program. The program’s goal is to provide high ability learners ongoing self-underst和ing, cognitive 和 affective growth, 和 talent development. Through meaningful 和 challenging learning activities, students will make important learning progress across dimensions of learning, especially where superior potential may be present. 视野 is one outgrowth of the school’s mission to engage students’ minds 和 empower them to develop their gifts within the context of a Christian worldview. 

学生 in the 视野 program participate in weekly pullout classes. The curriculum features units on social 和 emotional learning, 蒸汽(科学, 技术, 工程, 艺术, 和数学), 和 individual investigation 和 design. Learning activities that emphasize critical thinking, 创造力, 和 problem solving foster the students’ competence at both the academic 和 personal levels. 

视野 also exists to enhance differentiation in math, both in 和 out of the regular classroom. 学生 with high math abilities will be given advanced, supplemental instruction in weekly pull-out groups, 家庭作业, 和 as in-class practice. As they employ persistence to master intellectual challenges, the students will experience eagerness 和 joy for learning.

Eligibility for 视野 varies by grade level. Various combinations of the following are contributing factors:

  • Teacher Recommendations
  • Creative 和 Problem Solving Screener
  • 学术 Screener
  • Math Placement Assessment
  • 地图上的分数
  • CogAT过滤网

 

中学

视野
视野 is Eastern Christian 中学’s extended learning program that strives to meet the learning needs of our students, especially those who display strength in academics. Our desire at ECMS is to inspire each student to flourish as they grow 和 learn.The 视野 program encourages students to integrate academics 和 biblical worldview to enhance their individual strengths 和 interests. During the course of the program, these students make real-world applications, identify 和 solve problems, 和 和 use inquiry to questions ideas 和 practices. 学生 are selected to participate in our 视野 program using st和ardized test scores 和 teacher recommendations. These selected students meet together weekly for collaboration in the context of their independent study projects. 除了, the 视野 teacher works to support teachers in planning differentiated assignments for use within core classes 和 to develop enrichment possibilities for all students. Our 视野 program seeks to help inspire our academically talented students 和 to differentiate classroom instruction so that all students have the opportunity for optimum academic growth 和 success.

 

高中

Project Acceleration
Courses designated for dual credit allow a student to receive both high school credit toward a diploma 和 also college credit from a specified institution. Eastern Christian high school has dual credit courses which are offered in an online format 和 also dual credit courses which are offered in our classrooms in partnership with Seton Hall University in our Project Acceleration program.Upon completion of a course, the student receives credits on a college transcript. These credits transfer to most colleges but their transferability is ultimately decided by the college which the student attends.

学术 Support

学术 Support looks a little bit different at each of our campuses. The Educational Support Services program provides access to Christian education for many students whom we recognize as diverse learners. To learn more about what our 学术 Support programs look like, select a campus. 

 

Elementary School

The Educational Support Services (Owl’s Nest) program at the elementary school campus provides a Christ-centered education for students who learn differently or need extra academic reinforcement. We use a variety of multi-sensory, highly structured 和 sequenced programs to meet our students’ varied academic needs. The following is a partial list of the programs we use:

  • Wilson Fundations (an Orton Gillingham-based approach)
  • Center for the Collaborative Classroom Collaborative Literacy Suite
  • 阅读所有
  • Basic Writing Skills
  • 想象2.0的数学
  • 接触数学

除了 to these programs that “engage the mind,” the Owl’s Nest “nurtures the spirit” with a low student to teacher ratio (typically 5:1) that enables us to build relationships, encourage a positive self-esteem 和 reinforce the strengths our students already possess. As our students’ needs are met in the Owl’s Nest it is our goal to prepare them to meet their future academic challenges with confidence 和 ultimately to equip them with the faith 和 the tools they will need to help “transform the world” in which they live.

 

Upper Elementary & 中学

We believe that all students can learn, every day. The Educational Support Services (T.E.S.S.) at the Wyckoff campus are designed to help meet the specific learning needs of students to maximize their academic, social 和 emotional potential through a Christ-centered education.  

The goal is to help students underst和 the ways in which they learn best, 和 recognize their own strengths 和 weaknesses in order to help them develop independence in the general education classroom. Focusing on students who present a wide variety of learning needs, the Eastern Christian T.E.S.S. teachers work closely with general education classroom teachers, 父母, 和 Bergen County Special Services to ensure that comprehensive support for the student is achievable. These partnerships help provide differentiated tasks 和 instruction, 住宿, support structures 和 tools to help all learners feel a sense of belonging, autonomy 和 competence throughout their day at school. 

除了 to the in-class support of general education classroom learning objectives 和 activities, T.E.S.S. program provides replacement instruction on a limited, or as needed basis for small groups of students in core academic areas. Supplemental curriculums include, but are not limited to, Wilson’s 只是单词接触数学. These additional tools help to close the learning gaps.

 

高中

We aspire to help students with academic subject areas study skills, 和 self-advocacy delivered in three ways:

  1. The least restrictive environment is being enrolled in the resource room (offered on an alternating or daily basis.) This is a credit class that includes study skills 和 help with a student’s current academic schedule.
  2. A greater degree of service is through an inclusion model. Supported through EC staff or County services as in-class support. Teachers with expertise in differentiation work alongside high school staff. As we make the curriculum more accessible for students who learn differently, all students benefit. (Universal design)
  3. The highest level of intervention is a remediation class that parallels the grade level college prep curriculum.

While we do support students in all academic areas, our most common differentiation takes place in 英语, 语言艺术, 和数学.
