Understanding Our World
As students transition to the elementary grades, our program focus shifts toward developing a deeper understanding of fundamental concepts. This prepares them for the secondary years, which are geared toward analysis and critical thinking.
Our exciting and age-appropriate elementary program provides students with the right blend of direct instruction and hands-on learning experience critical to these early developmental years.
Students participate in a range of academic subjects while also benefiting from elementary enrichment and extracurricular activities to enhance their education and minister to the whole child.
We continue to foster social and emotional development through the elementary years. A strong foundation for healthy relationships and a biblical self-perception are essential for a smooth launch into the teen years.
Bible class continues to be a daily focus throughout elementary school. Our curriculum emphasizes practical application and an accurate view of God and His character. Students also participate in a weekly elementary chapel with a variety of preachers and speakers.
