Our average student to teacher ratio is 16:1 which provides each of our students with necessary one on one instruction time. Due to our limited enrollment we combine classes, which we have found for over 25 years to greatly enhance our students learning opportunities. The combined classroom setting enables many students to learn beyond their grade level while others are able to address academic weaknesses.
KINDERGARTEN- FIRST GRADE
The early academic years are critical
for laying a foundation in literacy, communications, and mathematics. The
majority of our Kindergartners have mastered first grade reading levels by the
end of the school year. Fun and exciting activities in science, arts, crafts,
and proper social etiquette develop a lifelong love of learning from our youngest
students. Our First graders have mastered cursive writing by the end
of their school year (not begun in public school until 3rd grade).
SECOND- FIFTH GRADE
The core curriculum for these grade
levels includes advanced phonics-based reading, grammar, composition, math,
social studies, and science. Our fifth grade students are extensively
instructed in creative writing, research papers, summaries and book reports.
SIXTH- EIGHTH GRADE
A challenging curriculum based on
necessary fundamentals (reading, writing, and math); along with science, social
studies, history, advanced vocabulary and language arts prepares our students
for high school and competition for college scholarship opportunities. On
average, our students use a curriculum a year above their grade level with our
eighth grade graduates having completed Algebra 1, freshman level
spelling-vocabulary, grammar, and composition.
In each of our classrooms our
students are instructed in scriptures. “In the beginning was the Word, and the
Word was with God, and the Word was God." "And the Word became
flesh and dwelt amongst us, full of grace and truth..."
Each class is instructed in physical
education twice weekly. The emphasis is on individual physical fitness,
comprehension of sports rules and regulations, as well as participation in group sports. Sportsmanship and discipline are learned in the class.
