Paragon Christian Academy was established in 1992, shortly after the Lord provided the ministry of World Vision for Christ with its first church building in London. The Ministry’s founder and director, Dr. Albert Chambers, has always had a vision for ministry to the children. When he was first saved in Portadown, Northern Ireland, over 40 years ago, he began an outreach work to the children of his community. Shortly after the Lord moved him to London in 1969, Dr. Chambers began reaching out to the children in addition to his salvation and deliverance crusades aimed at the most depressed of the inner city areas of this land.
There were many times when Dr. Chambers longed for a facility to use as a day school to teach our young people the things they need to fulfill the purposes of God in their lives, based firmly on the foundation of the Holy Scriptures. In 1992, the time had arrived. The Lord gave us the facility, and he gave us the system.
The system is the curriculum of Accelerated Christian Education. We had been following the progress of this curriculum since we first were introduced to it five years before. It is a unique individualised system, which places the emphasis on learning rather than teaching. That premise, coupled with the Biblical foundation of the curriculum and the character objectives interwoven into the educational process, led us to know that we had what Christian parents needed to educate their children as they wanted them to be educated.
