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).
Abeka, a Christian publisher, is our base curriculum for the subjects of phonics, reading, spelling, handwriting, science, and language. Abeka is advanced in comparison to many public school curriculum and teaches creation in science. Sadler- Oxford, a publisher of educational materials for over 170 years, stands as a basis for our upper level math studies. Sadler-Oxford offers the most advanced math curriculum on the market today.
Our average student to teacher ratio is 18:1 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.
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 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.
