Our elementary (Kindergarten – Grade 2) and upper elementary (Grades 3-5) programs are designed to establish a solid academic foundation. As these years are a critical time for establishing strong roots, we have intentionally built our curriculum to ignite interest in core subjects and 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 enhance learning with Promethean Boards in every classroom, sets of iPads in kindergarten and grade 1, and our 1:1 Chromebook beginning in grade 2.
