PRINCIPAL WELCOME LETTER
Welcome to the Arlington Christian School website.
It is a tremendous honor to serve the Arlington
Christian School community as Principal. As a perpetual
student advocate, I look forward to a continued
partnership of providing our scholars with a rigorous,
relevant, and high-quality educational experience. As the
parent of five beautiful children, I recognize the importance
of a strong home-school connection. Parents are every scholar’s first teacher and I believe that by working together, we can make sure your scholar’s social, emotional, and academic needs are met.
We must share the belief that all scholars will and must learn at high levels of achievement. Our vision is to create an environment in our classrooms that morphs in this high level of learning. With your support, scholars can master a rigorous curriculum – and it will be our expectation that they do. In order to effectively teach scholars, we must work collaboratively with teachers, scholars and parents to achieve this shared educational purpose.
At Arlington, we believe that great schools are the results of great teachers, so our primary objective is to ensure that every scholar is receiving high-quality instruction from every teacher. We will strive to develop a body of scholars that reflect good character; scholars who make good choices and decisions resulting in successful and healthy outcomes. We will encourage scholars to demonstrate the best of themselves every moment of every day and to make positive contributions to the community and organizations to which they belong.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve your families in this role! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share.
Kelvin L. Griffin, Ph. D., Principal

On Campus and Digital Learning
Blended Learning Schedule
Based on the results of the Learning Style of Choice Survey, the greatest preference (42%) was for Blended Instruction, which is on campus Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and homebased learning (“Digital Days”) on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This is applicable for scholars in all grades.
“Digital Days” will be implemented this school year in order to best accommodate all of the learning styles, as well as allow teachers to balance the face-to-face scholars and the online scholars. For example:
Monday – Introduce Lesson; Hands on Learning
Tuesday – Online Practice/Reinforcement; Online Interactive Activities
Wednesday – Revisit/Expound on the Lesson; Formative Assessment Assignments (Quizzes; Discussions; Interactive Games, etc.)
Thursday - Online Practice/Reinforcement; Online Interactive Activities
Friday – Summative Assessment Assignments (Final Tests; Projects; Papers, etc.)
Edgenuity, IXL, and additional online enrichment sources will be used as needed to accompany the BJU curriculum.
All scholars will receive an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) at the beginning of the school year.
Technology – 3rd through 12th graders will be assigned individual computers.
Books – Parents are purchasing books this year through our curriculum provider, Bob Jones University at www.bjupress.com. (Correspondence with ordering instructions was emailed to parents.)
