Challenged and Inspired in the Classroom

We excited to welcome back our students again for the 2020-2021 school year. Although our classes this year will look a bit different, we are committed to loving each student throughout the school year.

Students will deepen their skills and understanding necessary to achieve academically as well as develop a Christian character and what it means to be a citizen of their school, community, and the world around them.

When students, at home or virtually, begin their education focused on academic and spiritual growth, they have the foundation they need for a life long love of learning and a love for God and others.

COVID Policies for 2020-2021

COVID-19 has changed the way we will provide instruction this year. As guidelines and recommendations change, we update our policies and procedures so that every child is cared for while attending in person or virtually.

Curriculum

Students are challenged through a rigorous academic curriculum gaining a deep understanding of material covered through the use of multiple teaching techniques. Using technology, hand-on-learning, and individual focus on the needs of each student, your student will be challenged and love learning.

Beyond academics, students spend each day in a variety of “specials” providing enrichment for the whole student. Art, music, library, technology and physical education, students are exposed to a variety of hands-on learning experiences.

Your student will be challenged intellectually and grow in their curiosity for learning so that they can flourish.

Spiritual Growth

Student’s spiritual growth is just as important as their academic growth. Your child will develop an understanding who God is and and a willingness to obey his commands. Students will attend Chapel and Bible classes. Our foundation is in Christ and each student participates in chapel and bible lessons daily, learning what it means to follow God.

Students learn about God and his word through daily exposure to God’s word through sequenced Bible curriculum and thematic memory verse program, giving them a strong Biblical foundation for God and his word.

Technology

Technology touches every aspect of our day to day lives and every student should learn how to not just use technology in their education, but expand their knowledge so they can be successful in the future.

Kindergarten through 2nd-grade classrooms are equipped with a classroom set of Apple iPads and 3rd through 6th grade have a Chrome Book, giving students a one-to-one technology experience as they use programs and applications to extend the teaching objectives in the classroom.

Community

As students develop friendships in the classroom, they also are connected to other students at school and the community around them.

Every grade is involved in a mentoring program, partnering with students in different grade levels to encourage and build relationships.

We want our students to know that being in a community is more than just their needs, it’s about being active and involved in a larger community, learning to love and care for others as God calls us to do.
