Year One: Foundations for Authentic Christian Teaching and Learning.

Onsite or live online Sunday, June 26 – Saturday July 2, 2022, Chesapeake, Virginia.

Ask yourself: How did you become a teacher?  Do you want to be a teacher at home or in school? What preparation have you been given for the privilege of forming the hearts and minds of the influencers and leaders of the next generation? To form the character of the nation multi-generationally?  Beyond curriculum or skill-building, how do you learn the methods of forming Christian character, of inspiring hearts, and building leaders?

The Foundations for Authentic Christian Teaching and Learning Certification Course is the entry-level, six-day course in the Principle Approach philosophy, methodology and curriculum towards becoming a credentialed master Principle Approach teacher.

The joy of forming like-minded study partnerships with Principle Approach teachers and fellow-students focuses upon authentic learning and the honing of the Biblical worldview and Christian scholarship.

The Course relies on: Biblical reasoning; the practice of the methods that form Christian character; mastery of the Biblical classical approach that measurably forms the Biblical worldview for all of life; preparation to be a living textbook to your students; use of Christian scholarship to cultivate effective communication skills; the emergence of the teaching gift that elevates the individual, imparts vision for the Kingdom, and rebuilds the culture for Christ.

Outcomes of the Foundations Course include:

  • A love of teaching that begets the love of learning
  • A genuine Biblical worldview in every subject
  • Mastery of methods that form Christian character and conviction
  • A providential view of history and life
  • The ability to impart life-long learning skills
  • Effective use of logic and reasoning
  • Effective communication skills
  • Strategies for enabling every learner
  • Certification advancement

Teaching/Mentoring Method: Direct instruction with participation by discussion and presentation; building the Foundations record for all future teaching; application of teaching to individual circumstances (levels, settings, subjects, families, etc.); development of plans for implementation in local teaching setting.

Who should attend: Although many will want to take the summer training in order to become a certified master teacher, this may not be your desire. As always, you are welcome to take the summer training sessions without the pursuit of master teacher status. 

  • Novice teachers in school or home
  • Experienced teachers seeking more
  • Administrators who supervise instruction
  • Pastors seeking education solutions
  • Patriots concerned to rebuild the culture
  • Teachers and parents may also take the summer training as a refresher or to continue to stay current on Principle Approach philosophy, curriculum and methods.

Our Mission: To impart the foundational philosophy, methods, and curriculum of Biblical classical Principle Approach teaching and learning for rebuilding the culture multi-generationally for Christ His-Story.

The Foundations Course has been what I have been seeking for years. Thank you for the support in the process. It has been life changing. I am grateful for the knowledge and wisdom you have shared with us. 

Thank the Lord that He sent me here. It is going to change my teaching career and the lives of my students.

All instructors spoke from their hearts and personal experiences and study. It was very motivating and inspiring. I see the need for Christian education using the Principle Approach even more clearly after this course.

About the Author

Virginia Christian Alliance
The mission of the VIRGINIA CHRISTIAN ALLIANCE is to promote moral, social and scientific issues we face today from a Biblical point of view. In addition we will refute and oppose, not with hate, but with facts and humor, the secular cultural abuses that have overridden laws and standards of conduct of the past. We will encourage Christians to participate in these efforts through conferences, development of position papers, booklets and tracts, radio/TV spots, newspaper ads and articles and letters-to-the editor, web sites, newsletters and providing speakers for church and civic meetings.
