We are so excited to announce the opening of our new department coming to New Braunfels Christian Academy in the fall of 2016. You can download the Testing Application under the "Resources" tab on our website. The Einstein Center at NBCA will incorporate several elements of instructional enhancements that will be of benefit to numerous students who are average to above average in intelligence but who struggle academically for one reason or another. Each of these programs will have a set fee for participation. The following components will make up The Einstein Center at NBCA.
1. Academic Resource Room – Students will be able to use this area for fulfilling learning accommodations such as taking tests orally, extra time on work, and individualized as well as group tutoring. The Resource Room will be used as needed by students – some will come weekly and some will come daily. The Resource Room Director will work with teachers, parents, and students to help students make appropriate accommodations for success in the classroom. We are making every effort to have this program at both campuses.
2. Alphabetic Phonics – This program is for students in grades 2-12 who are struggling with some of the key components that may be keeping them from reading success. The Alphabetic Phonics Director will work with teachers to plan for students to come out of their classes for this group instruction.
3. NILD program – Partnering with the National Institute for Learning Development (NILD), New Braunfels Christian Academy will be able to offer one-on-one individualized educational therapy for students who are struggling with typical schoolwork but who are average to above average in their intelligence. The educational therapists will work with teachers to determine the best times for students enrolled in this program to come out of their classes twice each week. This program is similar to the work of Brain Balance, but at NBCA these students will also be blessed with educational therapy that comes to them through the biblical worldview of qualified therapists. This program is for students at both campuses. NBCA began the school year with two educational therapists and added a third therapist when the available sessions were filled.
