Our elementary program focuses on kindergarten through fifth grade because these years are a critical time for establishing strong roots in core subjects, and igniting interest in the more creative pursuits of art, music, and interdisciplinary learning.
Our Christian curriculum is rooted in a 21st-century approach. In addition to art, library, music, and P.E., elementary students participate in a STEAM class on a weekly basis: a hands-on class incorporating science, technology, engineering, art, and math, and helps students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills as they collaborate with their classmates to build, create and code.
Beginning in kindergarten, students receive daily phonics instruction through Fundations. This skill practice, coupled with other components of our language arts curriculum, fosters growth in reading fluency and comprehension and instills a love of reading.
At the elementary level, core skills are developed in:
- Social Studies
We use technology to enable learning with smartboards and Chromebook mobile labs in every classroom.
