christian education in elementary school

As a Christian day school we offer a structured learning environment with distinctive practices, values, expectations and an extension of Christian community life. We teach our students that man's highest duty is to Love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength (Mark 12:30), and that we need to Serve Others (Phil. 2:3-4), Obey Authority (Heb. 13:17), and Work Diligently (Col. 3:23).

All children progress through predictable stages of development in the same order, but not at the same rate, and thus the elementary program strives to accommodate individual differences in maturity and rate of development. Our curriculum stresses reading and language development, math calculation and number sense, biblical truth and its application, and an introduction to concepts in science and history. We introduce and develop foundational skills that equip young students to grow spiritually, cognitively, socially and physically.

  • Activity-based learning

    Elementary students are not sitting at their desks plowing through a stack of work-texts. In addition to working through published material, they are using classroom technology, engaged in class and small group meetings, working with hands-on projects, and exercising some choice in learning activities. A variety of culminating activities enrich the student experience and involve parents in creative ways.
