Gulf Pointe Academy is a private, classical, Christian school in Navarre & Gulf Breeze, FL. Class sizes are small with an average of one highly qualified teacher for each ten students. Today, Gulf Pointe offers preschool through 5th grade. We will continue to grow by adding one additional higher grade per year through high school.
Gulf Pointe Academy Is A Christian School
Our curriculum emphasizes reading and history and celebrates Western Civilization and our Christian heritage. Our faith statement is the Apostles' Creed, the most ancient and widely accepted expression of the essential beliefs of the Christian faith.
Gulf Pointe Academy Is A Classical School
The intensive study of classical Latin in the grammar school years develops the minds of students as no other subject can. Students who have learned how to learn with Latin become better students in all other subjects. The study of classical languages and the Greek/Roman classics provides a path to wisdom and knowledge that cannot be attained by any other method. Classical education can be distinguished from modern education, in that it does not neglect the important first step of giving students the tools for both intellectual development and for understanding their classical, Christian heritage.
Gulf Pointe Academy Is A Traditional School
In the traditional classroom, a knowledgeable, enthusiastic teacher carefully leads students to an understanding of each subject. Classrooms are quiet, orderly and disciplined. Lessons are incremental, content is age-appropriate and students learn the important skill of quality written work completed in a timely manner. The traditional classroom is consistent with human nature and the experience of many decades has demonstrated its superiority over the modern child-centered classroom.
Gulf Pointe Academy Teaches The Trivium
We believe this is the time-tested path to cultivate critical thinking skills that lead to a life of learning and knowledge-seeking. The Trivium method of teaching, which in Latin refers to the three arts, or skills, includes:
Grammar - Answers the question of the Who, What, Where, and the When of a subject. Discovering and ordering facts of reality comprises basic, systematic knowledge.
Logic - Answers the Why of a subject. Developing the faculty of reason in establishing valid [i.e., non-contradictory] relationships among facts, systematic understanding.
Rhetoric -Provides the How of a subject. Applying knowledge and understanding expressively comprises Wisdom or, in other words, it is systematically useable knowledge and understanding.
All kindergarten through 4th grade students completed the Iowa Test of Basic Skills this spring. We are pleased with the results. Click here to view.
