Academic Program

At Mount Hope Christian Academy, we envision our learners as leaders and innovators of tomorrow. As such, our goal is to ensure that our learners have an early, strong foundation, both academically and in the Word.   


Serving as our main curriculum, the Abeka curriculum “combines solid academics with biblical principles so that children are best prepared for learning and life”.   The Abeka curriculum is used in grades PreK-3, PreK-4, and K-5. Students receive instruction in the following areas as part of the Abeka curriculum.


  • Biblical principles
  • Literacy - Language arts (reading, writing, spelling, listening, speaking), 
  • Numeracy - Math Skills
  • Motor Skills Development
  • Creativity Development


Other resources used:

  • In addition to the Abeka program, teachers also utilize resources from Virginia's Foundation Blocks for Early Literacy (Pre-K4) and the Virginia Standards of Learning (Kindergarten - SOLs).
  • MHCA also uses information from Virginia’s Phonological Awareness Literacy Screener (PALS), in PreK-4 and K-5. PALS is the state-provided screening tool for Virginia’s Early Intervention Reading Initiative (EIRI). The purpose of the EIRI is to reduce the number of children with reading problems through early diagnosis and immediate intervention.   

  • Various other supplemental activities are used, and children are actively engaged through the use of Centers and Pretend Play that develop social and emotional learning and motor skills development.
