Student Objectives Ends Report 2012-2013
CAJ wants students achieving the student objectives:
- Students are achieving all the student objectives in most courses in most grades, they have high GPAs in high school, and many go on to successfully enter college or university.
- As responsible learners, students learn such things as fundamental arithmetic, the scientific method, and Bible stories from the Old Testament and New Testament.
- As discerning thinkers, students apply biblical principles to resolve conflicts, use documents to support conclusions, and create original works of art.
- As productive collaborators, students work in small groups, work with students from local schools, and show respect for each other as image bearers of God.
- As effective communicators, students give presentations on caring for God's creation, perform instrumental and choral music, and write essays analyzing literature.
- As faithful caretakers, students practice proper care for laptop computers, provide food for the homeless, and help build classrooms for a hill tribe school in Thailand.
- Students 5th, 8th, and 12th grade participate in culminating events that allow them to show how they are achieving the student objective. For example, the 12th grads completes Senior Comprehensives.
- For 11th and 12th graders, 58% are enrolled in math (Algebra II, Applied Math, Pre-calculus, Calculus, AP Calculus), 43% are enrolled in science (Chemistry, Physics, AP Chemistry, AP Physics, and AP Biology), and 69% are enrolled in Advanced Placement. (Taking a 3rd year of math or science or taking an AP class exceeds graduation requirements.)
- Over 85% of secondary students participated in 1 or more co-curricular activities.
