Elementary School (K-5)
As we partner with families, our mission is to guide our students to pursue a life of excellence and integrity in Jesus Christ, to discover their God-given gifts and talents, and to impact the world around them for the kingdom of God.
We partner with families in providing a loving, Christian educational community. Using best teaching practices, we strive for excellence in the development of our students’ literacy and numeracy skills, as well as in the development of fundamental skills and concepts in a variety of other subject areas that are required for each grade level according to age appropriateness. With each subject being taught through a Biblical Worldview, students are engaged and challenged during Phonics, Reading, Spelling, Grammar, Writing, Math, Handwriting, Science, History, and Bible classes. Elementary students enhance their education through the use of technology and through participation in Music, Art, and Physical Education.
Through daily devotionals, Bible classes, and weekly chapel services, students learn about the importance of living a life surrendered to Christ and allowing Him to transform us daily to have His character, and also learn about the importance of studying God’s Word, prayer, and worshipping Him. While enveloping students in Christ’s love and allowing children to grow in a grace-filled environment, students learn about moral and spiritual principles, as well as accountability, to achieve their highest potential for His glory.
Best teaching practices, including the use of whole and small group instruction, are used to engage and motivate students to perform at their best potential. Annual and tri-annual standardized testing data is used to best instruct students in small groups at their similar levels while reading texts or needing similar reading or math concepts taught. Advanced math groups are also utilized to challenge students who have scored high on standardized testing and have been recommended by teachers by their classroom performance to participate.
In fifth grade, students have the opportunity to participate in our secondary school band, orchestra, or choir. Fifth grade students can also join our athletic teams; we offer girls’ volleyball, girls’ basketball, and boys’ basketball.
