The Pathways Program reflects Metrolina Christian Academy’s mission to lovingly lead and equip students for Kingdom living knowing that all children are fearfully and wonderfully made. With God’s unique design for each child, our desire is to support and challenge students with different learning and developmental needs in a Christ-centered environment as they grow academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.

Reading Intervention provides students with targeted, intensive, and strategic instruction on reading, writing, and spelling to accelerate those who are below grade level in literacy skills. Using diagnostic, individual and classroom assessments to identify student needs, instruction includes a small group setting with a multi-sensory phonics approach designed for students with dyslexia or other reading difficulties.
Math Intervention provides students with targeted, intensive, and strategic instruction to reinforce key mathematical concepts and build mathematical fluency to support those who are diagnosed with math disabilities or are below grade level in math skills. Small group instruction will allow students to explore mathematical concepts using a multi-sensory approach including the use of manipulatives, games, technology, and appropriate resources that will build on students’ strengths to foster a deeper understanding of math concepts.
Academic Support Path
Our Academic Services Path offers an opportunity for students with challenges that affect their learning to be taught in an environment that values different learning styles while providing academic intervention to meet their needs. Our desire is to provide students who learn differently with an opportunity to receive an excellent education that supports their development and fosters independent learning in core content areas.
Our Transitions Path is designed for children with developmental and/or learning issues who require a specialized program of instruction that includes social and life skill education. The teachers will focus on skill development tailored to each student based on an educational diagnosis and will provide a supportive, student-centered classroom environment. With small class sizes, an individualized schedule, and an instructional plan outlining specific needs and goals, students are supported and encouraged as they develop levels of independence.
