Special Academic & Emotional Support Programs at the Center
a ministry of the Christian Family & Children's Center
     Students who learn differently or who have special needs for learning are welcome at the Center and Champion Christian School.  Although our school program is established as a high quality academic program, our developmental orientation allows for us to meet the needs of students who learn differently or who have histories that require special understanding and educational treatment.    
     We offer a variety of services to students to meet them where they are, and there are multiple options for funding those programs should you need financial assistance.  Please make sure that you communicate with our Administrators and Financial Aid Staff about those options.  
     Listed below are some of the varied resources that we have available for families and students at CCS should they need those services.  It is very important to understand though that all students must meet the guidelines of the CCS Student Profile in order to be admitted to CCS.  
     Many of these services are available to the community as well.  Contact the Center directly for information if you are a community member.
ED00228_.WMF (15276 bytes) Tutoring: Tutoring at the Center is available for students who are in Champion Christian as well as enrolled in other schools.  There are a variety of ways that can be experienced through Private  Academic Tutoring.

Title I tutoring, Speech Therapy, and other services are provided to students at CCS as well as testing by School Psychologists as well as other academic interventions.

Discovery:  The Discovery Program is a special program that is designed to meet very specific needs of certain students with learning disabilities and different learning styles. The Center has also covered teacher training expenses and other costs for this program as well as financial aid as needed. We realize that the cost of this program is significant for the school and parents. Working together as a team we can watch the Lord as he accomplishes His goals for these students.

Counseling:  Counseling is provided through the Center's Licensed Professional Counselors when needed to help with diagnosis of attention issues, autism, mental health needs, and help with family work as needed.

Center Discovery Program staff are trained by the National Institute for Learning Differences.

The Discovery program staff have been trained by the National Institute for Learning Differences Staff (NILD) in Norfolk, Virginia. The goal is to help children with learning difficulties who have experienced academic frustration and/or failure in the classroom setting. These children have average intelligence but are not able to learn by traditional classroom instruction due to perceptual difficulties. The Discovery students have one-on-one educational therapy sessions in their deficit areas two times a week. Each session lasts 80 minutes and is outside the classroom setting. The remainder of the student's schedule is spent in the regular classroom situation. The student receives additional homework during the therapy session, but the therapist works with the classroom teachers to adjust the daily work load. The therapist works closely with the teacher, student, and parents to create a support system for the child. The ultimate goal is to assist the student in a successful learning mode and reach his full potential in the classroom with a program that culminates between three to five years.

Tutoring Support:  Specific Skill set Intervention

Regardless of the source of funding, or which school a student is enrolled in, trained teachers will work with classroom instructors or other professionals to work on specific skill sets for students, to help them with developing the skills to succeed in school.  

One of our greatest benefits is having a program that is specifically designed for the Christian school setting. Educational therapy is hard work, yet your child's self-esteem will grow as he begins to realize the abilities that God has given him...to think and to interact independently within the environment around him. Then, as he sees his own success and gains self-confidence, he will grow academically.
