Head-Heart-Hand Foundation

WiloStar3D Academy is built on an integrated, holistic approach to learning that also embraces the Head, Heart and Hands foundation. We believe in an integrative vision for reuniting Christian thought, passion and action. By linking our students’ intellect, emotions and actions we strengthen their overall faith. Each dimension feeds, nurtures and sustains the others, just as we teach an integrated holistic aspect of learning in academics, so too do we teach a holistic approach with faith. When we read the Bible we don’t just want to fill our heads with knowledge. We study with our heads so that we will love Jesus with our hearts. In Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus rebukes the religious leaders for honoring him with their lips but resisting him in their hearts. And we want that love to overflow into genuine action with our hands. We seek God’s grace and wisdom to provide a balanced Christian education for the head, heart and hands of His children. In these commingling mysteries of life and education, we acknowledge that the “Lord establishes the work of our hands.” (Psalm 98)

Heads

Education must involve the whole person. It must embrace the head which is the forming of one’s mind. The head is the symbolic center for knowledge, thinking and rationality. This ability to reason, to process information, to discern and synthesize is a God-given gift that contributes to our humanity and equips students for Christian living. Learning how to apply knowledge, build knowledge and discern knowledge are the keys to the WiloStar educational process. Students create 3D Knowledge towers and virtual worlds to help synthesize concepts learned and to learn how to discern truth from educational concepts and resources. It teaches students to build on this knowledge and to reach higher levels of creativity in the process.

Hearts

WiloStar3D Academy believes in educating the emotions and building character with Biblical studies. We do this with an integrated biblical worldview in all modules and courses. The heart is the symbolic center of our emotions, feelings and motivation. Values and character are issues of the heart, and Matthew 15 identifies the heart as the source of our “evil thoughts.” The desires of the heart, good or evil, are powerful often beyond our rationality, thereby controlling our decisions and dictating our behavior. In the WiloStar curriculum, we emphasize character education from directed learning experiences and lessons as well as “teachable moments’ right inside the 3D virtual worlds.

Hands

Hands builds a foundation to prepare students for service. We do this via local community service requirements but also through our virtual world building. For instance, students will not only volunteer at the local level in soup kitchens, local churches and other organizations but also with their hands virtually with our student mentor program. WiloStar teaches students to be fully engaged in both the virtual world immersive settings and also the real world . We believe that we must challenge students to be “in the world,” active, productive and fully engaged and not just in the “virtual world.”

Reasons to Enroll in the WiloStar3D Academy

We think different. We are unique, constantly evolving, and innovative. We stand true to our  “creating creators” philosophy to help all students achieve their potential in their own unique way. We are American Christian patriots that believe in the power of God, Family and Country and the unified strength this brings to education.

Holistic Learning

WiloStar has a holistic approach to learning. We believe students need to have real world learning and experiences in addition to their virtual learning activities. From outdoor field experiences and science experiments to community service, out students receive a balanced education with us.

An Integrated Approach

WiloStar utilizes an integrated approach to learning. This means that our language arts program across all grade levels uses novels to anchor the themes and topics across all subjects. To read more about our integrated approach visit the middle and high school overview sections of our site.

Interactive Electives

WiloStar offers both self-directed and live interactive electives for our students. From coding, to 3D game and character creation to the Science of Sherlock Holmes, we have something for everyone. WiloStar also allows our students to take outside electives if they have specific interests that we do not offer. Approval is handled on a case by case basis. Students in grades 6-11 also have a PE requirement that is fulfilled locally. View our elective overviews for more details!

Integrated Block Scheduling

WiloStar3D Academy is set up with an integrated block scheduling emphasis. In the middle school, students complete focues five week modules that include a unifing novel genre to compliment either the science or social stuides theme. In our high school, students complete a full year course over one semester and that cuts down on disjointed learning and allows them to concentrate on two core courses and two smaller electives per semester.
