Grades K-5

Our elementary program includes K through grade 5.

Grades K – 2 are an important time to build a solid spiritual and academic foundation. We focus on:

  • Foundational skills of reading, writing, and math
  • Implementing hands-on strategies and technology to build on phonemic awareness, reading comprehension, writing stages, number sense and problem solving
  • Integration of Biblical principals in all subjects, along with a daily Bible class
  • Memorization of Bible passages and weekly chapel programs
  • Encouraging scholars to apply Biblical principles in their daily lives

Grades 3-5 are a time of great growth in knowledge, learning skills and independence in studies. During these years, we focus on:

  • Specific content areas such as social studies and science
  • Introducing scholars to research skills
  • Progressing scholars from learning to read to reading to learn
  • Developing a healthy independence, especially as they become increasingly accountable for their study and organizational habits
  • Biblical integration occurs in all subjects along with a daily Bible class
  • Encouraging students to apply Biblical principles in relationships with others and leadership roles
  • Setting appropriate expectations in classrooms that use teaching methods suited for varied learning styles
