Wings of Faith Academy offers a fully accredited high school diploma through its dual-enrollment program with Lighthouse Christian Academy.
We help students to find or rekindle their love for learning. Our on-campus school specializes in finding and filling the gaps in each students’ educational foundation. We spend time getting to know each student and building relationships with them. We work to present concepts in ways that make sense to the student by finding what they are passionate about and presenting material in a way that interests them.
Our teachers help students to establish daily goals in school work. The teachers understand that it is impossible to achieve the goal without setting a goal. Like many in society today, our students have grown comfortable in letting life happen to them and then accepting the consequences. We take the time to teach them that by living intentionally and with a purpose, they can achieve far more than they have ever realized. Daily goal-setting helps the student establish a priority to their day and sets the path for them to achieve their purpose for the day successfully. With the understanding that each student is unique with individual learning needs, students are encouraged to create specific goals daily, work toward accomplishing their goals, and continuously progress using techniques designed specifically for them.
All students are dual-enrolled with Lighthouse Christian Academy for accreditation purposes. Lighthouse Christian Academy (LCA) is accredited through Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS) and by Accreditation International (Ai). Lighthouse Christian Academy’s accredited status allows them to validate the education students receive while attending here.
Lighthouse Christian Academy, the distance-education provider of Accelerated Christian Education® (A.C.E.), provides the opportunity for WOF students to receive an accredited transcript and diploma though a dual-enrollment program. High school students are assigned a projected course of study to place them on the right track to graduate. The Dual Enrollment program allows our students to earn an accredited diploma, to transfer credits more easily, and to have wider access to programs and scholarships..
LCA diplomas are accredited through three national accreditation agencies:
- Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS)
- National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA)
- Accreditation International (Ai) — Ai is a recognized member in good standing with the Council on Occupational Education (COE) and the International Council for Education.
Upon completing the WOF program, students leave with a streamlined official transcript that brings their previous schooling together with the classes completed at WOF. With Lighthouse as the school of record, this transcript will simplify the re-enrollment process for WOF students who will continue middle or high school upon leaving WOF. Students may earn their high school diploma while at WOF. Our graduates have gone on to enroll in/attend: Vocational Schools, Community Colleges, Universities, and other institutions of higher learning.
