Learning Connections

As part of Asheville Christian Academy’s commitment to accessibility and its partnership with Christian families, Learning Connections serves students who have been identified with common learning differences. By partnering with teachers and parents, Learning Connections helps create a “bridge between learning and success.”

We strive to understand our students’ unique needs and to provide effective programs to meet those needs. Equipping and empowering students to reach their God-given potential allows them to use their gifts, skills, and talents to fulfill God’s will in their lives. Essential to the Learning Connections program is the appreciation that through weakness God can be glorified (I Corinthians 12:7-10).
