Christian Prodigies Junior Academy

  Southern   California's  Traveling  Homeschool  Classroom

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Christian Prodigy, and what is the philosophy of this school? ​​
The entire purpose of this school is to create CHRISTIAN PRODIGIES that grow up to become World Changing Powerhouses for God.  A Christian Prodigy is a child that has truly mastered who they are in Christ from a very young age.  They are not easily swayed by the ways of the world.  They know exactly who they are, why they're here, and are set apart to dominate their environments.  They have developed a deep, genuine, and priceless relationship with God and will stand with Him as His unquenchable beacon of light against the darkness in these last days.  They have mastered their God-given talents, reached their potential, then as a result, use their inevitable prosperity to build up others for the ultimate purpose: to CHANGE THE WORLD for God and the greater good.

What exactly is Christian Prodigies Junior Academy? 
Christian Prodigies Junior Academy is a  TRAVELING, HOME-BASED Private School that is entirely dedicated to ONE classroom of 12 students total.  This means a school of 12 homeschoolers are taught from a residential home, then travel to different parts of Southern California and even the world for field trips, fun trips, outdoor socials interaction, and hands on fun.  This school uniquely provides the most beautiful collaboration of a STRUCTURED PRIVATE SCHOOL SETTING, frequent 1-on-1 TUTORING, CUSTOMIZED SCHOOLWORK,, POSITIVE & SUCCESSFUL MINDSET WORKSHOPS, ADULT PREPARATION/SELF RELIANCE, INDIVIDUAL CAREER TRAINING WORKSHOPS, and OUTDOOR EXCURSIONS multiple times a week (typically with other Homeschoolers)!!!   Academic ratios are typically 1 Teacher to 4 Students.  This extremely small capacity helps to ensure optimal results in the most controlled of environments.  We don't believe in holding back any child's potential simply because it is the social norm.  Our academic curriculum was created by Credentialed Teachers to better ensure each child is academically where they should be or better.


What are all your programs?


           PRIVATE SCHOOL (children born between 2006 - 2010): 

         Christian Prodigies gives academic assessments based on each Prodigy's grade level standards per subject.  We monitor strengths,

             weaknesses, and academic progress.  This will look different for each child, therefore, frequent 1 on 1 instruction is given to every single child

             in this program.  Extensive effort is given for each child to master core academic standards (English, Language Arts, Spelling,

             Grammar, Reading and Math).  Once core academic mastery is completed (usually around 9th grade and up); the greater majority of class is

           dedicated towards their "professional career": internships, related coursework, optional employment, related classes, individual coaches, and

             related reading material.  For example; Chemistry is given to future Chemists, a business license may be given to Entrepreneurs, cooking

           practice to future Chefs and so on.  Our program includes workshops that help the whole child, and not just with academics.  This includes; 

            college preparation, self reliance, positive and successful mindsets, emergency preparation, character building, budgeting, domestic skills,

            etc.  There is no school in the entire world quite like Christian Prodigies.  This private school cares to develop children into their BEST SELVES

            and properly equip them to not only soar through college, but to impact the world for God and humanity.

Do you require vaccinations?
Because students are enrolled with our "home-based" private school, Christian Prodigies falls under this rare exemption and therefore does not require it.  Students are welcome to join Christian Prodigies whether children are vaccinated or not.  

How do you teach different grades at the same time?
During academic classroom time, each group has extremely low ratios (1 teacher to 4 students).  Christian Prodigies' programs are combined outside of academic learning (with the school and outside homeschoolers as well).  Positive and safe socialization with other individuals is extremely beneficial and essential for the proper development of children.  This helps to ensure that everyone is given the opportunity to reach their potential learning abilities, while at the same time develop the imperative social skills needed to function in the real world. 

Where does the program take place?
For outdoor programs, we travel throughout the Southern California region; mainly LA County, Orange County, Inland Empire, and San Diego County 5 times a week.  Our indoor classroom will take place in a residential home located in the South Bay.  Exact location is to be determined (by July 2019).

Can you tell me about your "Open Door Policy" and parent participation?
Parents are always encouraged to volunteer, join us on field trips, and watch their children in outdoor play.  Parents will be kept in a tight loop of what goes on and where they will be.  They are also welcome to "spy" on their children at any time.  The parent/child bond is incredibly important here and strongly encouraged. All parents must go through extensive background checks and may only be alone with their own children.

In addition, an annual blog/album is posted online for parents to bask in the precious memories their children are creating during this priceless time in their life.  They will also be given a gifted annual calendar that maps out future events for the upcoming school year that displays pictures of all the fun they had in the past year.

What happens when it rains?
Depending on the safety aspect and other weather conditions, fieldtrips may be altered, but not necessarily cancelled.  Parents should always have a working contact and will be immediately notified (typically through text) if plans are to change.  There may be an occasion or two where children will have the opportunity to play in the rain.  Parents will be asked to always dress their child accordingly.

How will I know if this program is right for my family? 
Because this is a very rare and selective program, it is imperative for the student to be a good fit for the school and vice versa.  Interviews and assessments are required before enrolling and from there get a better idea if this is the right school for them.  This is a "no-nonsense" school with very strict polices and high expectations from both the children and their parents/caregivers. 

This school is particularly beneficial for families and children that:
   *   Thrive on being physically active and is opposed to schoolwork overload/sitting at a desk 6+ hours daily
   *   Want their children to be raised with a solid Christian upbringing, positive friends and a safe environment
   *   Want the highest quality of education and care; better than public school, private school, nannies or even what a personal tutor can provide
   *   Don't want their children to be vaccinated
   *   Want to protect their children from bullying, abuse, and bad influences
   *   Want their children to have structure, discipline, be smart, be kind, be loving, and overall better individuals
   *   Don't agree with what is being taught in traditional schools or the way it is taught (common core, large class sizes, and controversial lessons)
   *   Want to give their child a happy, healthy, childhood
   *   Families seeking for better adult preparation for the real world (breaking societal brainwash, building leadership skills, proper career training,
        entrepreneurship, real life skills etc.)
   *   Want their children homeschooled, but can't do it themselves for whatever reason 


This may not be a good fit if your child lacks discipline and/or you're not ok with the necessary change, if you disagree with any aspect of our philosophies, if you have a problem with your child traveling often, and if you cannot realistically afford the school expenses.  Children are expected to do their very best for up to 7 hours of rigorous academic drills, and are still expected to behave accordingly when attending our outdoor explorations, to be respectful to staff and others, and to give their very best in every aspect of learning.  


How do you discipline children?
The best strategy is to keep them busy and take heed to their needs.  Many school problems arise because of the LACK of supervision, which obviously would not apply at our school.  In any case, immediate reinforcement is our main method with motivational tokens, prizes, and privileges given for positive behaviors.  Demerits, timeouts, and fewer privileges are given for negative behaviors or defiant academic lag.  If your child still cannot follow instructions, unfortunately the family will be asked to withdraw.  It would be unfair to the other students and potentially dangerous for the safety of a constantly busy classroom.  All fees, deposit, and used tuition in these cases would be non-refundable.  
  
What are all the financial requirements for these programs?
Payments are due by the 20th of the month previous month with a 5 day grace period, after which a late fee of $25 will be applied.  You will be charged $5/day for every day late starting on the first.  If payment is not made in a timely fashion, your child will unfortunately be at risk for disenrollment.  Must fill out a "Notice of Disenrollment Form" at least 30 days in advance.
 .
In person Cash, Direct Deposit, and PayPal are the only acceptable methods of payment at this time.  All PayPal payments will be charged the 2.75% Paypal service fee. For paypal payments, please submit to:    Paypal.me/ChristianProdigies
                     

Do you offer discounts?
Unlike most schools, this private school is limited to an EXTREMELY small amount of students yet still offers the VERY BEST and MOST UNCHARTED QUALITY OF EDUCATION (no exaggeration).  In fact, there's no other school quite like it!  Pricing is set relatively low considering the unheard of quality of education and the extravagent expenses associated in order to realistically operate successfully.  Please see the PRIVATE SCHOOL PAGE for discount details.

For those that cannot afford our private school, we still welcome all students to join our homeschool group and enjoy the incredible benefits for ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!
