Elementary Academics

Elementary
Our elementary school program, covering kindergarten through fifth grade, expands the preschool academic vision.  Elementary reinforces positive work habits while continuing to strengthen cognitive abilities and critical thinking, a foundation proven to have a positive effect on our students’ test and SAT scores.

Small Class Sizes
Our small class sizes ensure that your children will have a close, personal rapport with teachers, less behavioral problems, and more instructional time. Our teachers encourage independent thinking and group work while helping to develop a strong sense of personal and spiritual identity.  Each year, our teachers share how they are blessed with the joys of watching their young students grow into experienced observers of God’s creation.

Individualized Help
The elementary resource room is available for struggling students. Individual students and small groups are able to receive support in instruction in specific academic areas. Small group help is provided within the classroom.

Peer to Peer tutoring is offered for upper elementary.  Identified students are paired based on their academic strengths and weaknesses.

Developmental Screening
Development screenings (Ages and Stages Questionnaire-3) are conducted on all kindergartners each year. These screenings help pinpoint developmental progress and creates a snapshot needed to catch delays and celebrate milestones. Evidence show that the earlier development is assessed — the greater the chance a child has to reach his or her potential. Learn more about ASQ-3.
