NACA uses the ABeka Book Curriculum for children ages two and older. Our daily curriculum is one that will instill education, imagination and independence. Daily schedules with the age appropriate activities will be posted in each classroom. Each day shall have active periods, teacher directed activities, free play, large and small muscle activities, arts and crafts, dramatic play, rhythm and music, nature and science, and quite time. Toddlers and preschoolers rest in their rooms on assigned mats each day after lunch. The naps are typically from 1 to 2 hours. There will also be outdoor time for each child. There are two age appropriate playgrounds for the children. The children under one year of age are required to be outside for at least one hour per day and the children over one are required to be outside for at least 1 1/2 hours of outdoors. If there are medical reasons why your child cannot participate in outdoor activities, please have your physician request in writing.
The After School children will have a snack when they arrive at the center. The children will have indoor and outdoor time, along with quiet time in which to work on homework. For more information on the AfterSchool Enrichment Program, please see the center director.
Excellence in Education from a Christian Perspective Since 1972
In 1954, Dr. Arlin Horton and his wife, Beka, started a Christian school in Pensacola, Florida. But they soon discovered a problem. Textbooks and curriculum based on biblical educational philosophy were starting to disappear. Burdened to give their students the best education possible, they stood in the gap and began producing their own materials. When administrators and teachers from other Christian schools saw how these materials could help their students and asked if they could buy these materials, A Beka Book was born.
Pensacola Christian Academy
Even with proven materials, teaching still takes time, commitment, and skill. To help growing Christian schools and homeschool families, A Beka Academy video instruction from the master teachers of Pensacola Christian Academy began in 1985.
In 2014, digital textbooks, art, teaching aids, and assessments were introduced to enhance learning and save time in the classroom and at home.
In 2017, A Beka Book became Abeka, and all Abeka products—including Abeka Academy—became available at abeka.com.
What started with phonics-based readers and traditional arithmetic textbooks has now grown to comprise over 1,000 educational products from nursery through 12th grade—all written by educators with real teaching experience. Today, Abeka continues to partner with school teachers and homeschooling parents to help provide an excellent education from a Christian perspective.
Abeka has comprehensive, quality curriculum and materials written from a Christian perspective. Now more than ever, each child needs a strong foundation in both academics and character.
For over forty years, schools and homeschooling families have trusted Abeka to provide materials using the traditional approach proven successful throughout education’s history. Professionally illustrated textbooks and teaching aids, hands-on activities, challenging exercises, purposeful repetition, and the reinforcement of concepts from subject to subject give you all the tools you need to make learning interesting and memorable.
Each subject’s content comes from the work of skilled, dedicated scholars who have conducted primary research. See your students achieve the academic excellence and moral character that leave them equipped for life, just like over one million children developing into lifelong learners with Abeka every year.
