Welcome to Wellmont Academy
Wellmont Academy is an accredited Christian private school for K12 students with hybrid 3-day options.
Wellmont Academy was birthed in 2011 from one homeschool family's desire for more structure than what homeschooling and co-ops would provided. Other families joined them, and over the next 12 years, it flourished and grew, becoming an accredited Christian school in 2018, and has gradually became a 5-day K12 academic program, retaining the option for families who qualify to retain a 3-day campus attendance schedule.
At Wellmont Academy, we focus first on developing the whole student, including constant inclusion of a Christ-centered world-view in all subjects and activities, helping our students to focus on daily encounters with Christ, developing character through leadership opportunities and service roles, and prayerfully helping them to become excellent in all things including academics.
Our elementary program (K-6th grades) operates shared classroom spaces dependent on enrollment each year. This environment allows students to be with their own grade level, but also easily move to reading and math groups that fit their ability. Barton tutoring for students with dyslexia is also available for enrolled students. Teams of lead teachers and teacher aides operate in concert in these classrooms, so that our student-teacher ratio is approximately 5-1, or in the case of Barton, 1-on-1. Teachers are keenly aware of the needs of each student and have close relationships with parents to provide the foundation and structure that young students need to thrive and be ready for our rigorous upper level program.
At Wellmont Academy, we believe strongly in the use of textbooks, and use of smart boards and technology is minimal. This is done with intention, to foster active alpha brain wave activity that promotes active not passive learning. Through discussion, practice, repetition, hands-on activities, formal writing expectations, tests, quizzes, presentations, and fun days like internal and external field trips.
Upper Level Program
Our upper level program (7-12th grades) is structured with class separation for cores according to grade level and ability. We continue with the use of textbook-driven study, but the use of electronic submissions is also employed. We offer standard and honors level courses as well as on-campus online dual enrollment for students who qualify.
Students in the upper grades are encouraged to apply for limited student teaching opportunities in our lower grades with qualified teachers. This develops self-esteem, leadership, and presentation skills in a low-stress environment and bridges the gap between our lower and upper grade programs, uniting our K12 student body. Juniors and seniors interested in studying education are encouraged to apply to be Student Teaching Assistants in the upper grades as well.
Wellmont Academy also specializes in training gifted students with dyslexia to understand their brain, use their unique ability, build on their strengths, and integrate into mainstreamed classrooms. We utilize 1-on-1 Barton tutoring to initiate this transformation, and offer services throughout the day for Wellmont students and after school for students who attend other schools.
