New Adventures Learning Community

New Adventures Learning Community

New Adventures Learning Community

People learn best when it is something that interests them. Whether it be cooking, superheroes, history, science, whatever… we build that into our curriculum. While all students are learning the same skills, the way they are learning them is unique to each student.

The New Adventures Learning Community thoughtfully blends the best features of multiple educational traditions to create a student-centered academic approach providing both flexibility and accountability.

▪ Each student creates a personalized curriculum with family input and professional guidance. The student’s curriculum draws from his or her unique interests, passions and goals, and is implemented with the type of one-on-one educational coaching Homeschoolers enjoy.
▪ Students help plan their own daily and weekly schedules, taking charge of their education with professional on-site assistance. Like Montessori students, they learn at their own pace, progressing farther and faster in areas of strength, and taking more time to work through more challenging subject matter.
▪ Children are free to move, eat, and drink when they need to.
▪ There is no unnecessary stress, standardized testing, or required homework, though students may work on projects at home if they choose to.
▪ Students have daily opportunities to collaborate, teach, and learn from each other, and to socialize with peers and develop long-term friendships.

We have created a schedule that enables the students to choose their topics – for short term or long term projects. With a varied range of modalities, they learn the skills necessary for high school completion.

Esh’e lan – a squadron V formation which allows geese to conserve energy by using the uplift of air from the goose in front of it. By flying in a V formation the whole flock adds at least 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own. This formation allows each bird to have an unobstructed field of vision, allowing flock members to see each other and communicate while in flight. The geese take turns leading; there isn’t one designated leader. As one bird tires, it drops to the back of the formation and another takes its place.

Trinity Christian School

Trinity Christian School

Trinity Christian School is a K-12, independent Christian school centrally located in Fairfax County, serving all of Northern Virginia.

Since its founding in 1987, Trinity has sought to educate the whole student by pursuing excellence for mind and heart. This necessarily involves the transmission of truth that engages the mind, grips the heart, and evokes a resonant response of service. Such knowledge encourages cohesive thinking and shapes godly character by establishing a consistent Christian worldview that is anchored in the creative, sustaining, and redemptive work of Jesus Christ. Our goal is that our students will be salt and light in their various vocations by living lives that challenge the prevailing culture and bring glory to the Lord Jesus Christ by serving Him well in all places and at all times, whatever the cost.

In the forefront of this endeavor is a capable, committed, and Christian faculty, who encourage our students to think critically across the breadth of a rigorous curriculum. Our teachers strive to help each student be a good and faithful servant of God by thinking God’s thoughts after Him and by rightly interpreting and developing God’s creation for His glory according to His Word. The support of parents who consistently teach biblical knowledge in the home is an indispensable part of Trinity’s educational effort.
