Elementary

1st - 5th Grade

Establishing a foundation of confidence

The elementary stage of school is a crucial time to shape students’ beliefs about learning and themselves as learners.  We aim to accomplish this through customized engaging instruction in the areas of math and language arts to give them a firm foundation on becoming lifelong learners. Included in their weekly academic studies will be science, entrepreneurship skills and discovery learning. Our desire is to build their confidence to learn while magnifying their sense of wonder and curiosity.

Academic Core

Each child is designed beautifully and uniquely, so there is no one-size-fits-all for maximum learning. A customized learning plan is created with the input of students, teachers, and parents.

Table Time

Language Arts and Mathematics are taught one on one and in small groups. Students are paired with a program best for their learning needs and paced individually to allow mastery of all concepts and skills. Lessons are designed to appeal to various modalities of learning ensuring each student is motivated, engaged and grows in their ability to focus. Writing is partnered with literature and social studies to promote engaging discussions and meaningful writing. Science is a continuation of our hands-on learning. All concepts are founded in Biblical principles, putting Christ at the center of all creation!

Learning Centers

When students are not at Table Time, they are rotating through various learning centers to reinforce or introduce concepts of each subject. Our learning center time is just as important as our table time. Each center falls under one of four categories: Finishing, Assignments, Independent Learning, and Your Choice. The purpose of these centers are to allow students to finish assignments and not feel rushed, practice specific skills, begin to learn time management, and build strategic thinking skills. Centers can include online activities, art activities, games, and more!

Beyond The Core

Each child is designed beautifully and uniquely, so there is no one-size-fits-all for maximum learning. A customized learning plan is created with the input of students, teachers, and parents.

Discovery Learning

How do you learn about anything? This is the goal of discovery learning. Discovery Learning is the opportunity for students to take the lead and learn about topics that interest them! Students’ natural ability to wonder and be curious is encouraged in this program. Here they will learn how to narrow down topics and ideas, locate the appropriate resources for information, set learning goals and communicate their knowledge to others. Skills for lifelong learning are created here!

Clubs

Students are allowed to participate in up to two clubs per quarter. On designated Monday afternoons we will host a speech club through NCFCA, the National Christian Forensic Communications Association. This club helps students to become confident and competent communicators through various styles and formats of public speaking. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in book clubs, writing clubs and brain games clubs as well as form clubs based on collaborative interests!

Special Area

Every Friday after lunch students will rotate through three special areas: music, art and physical education. Each class is formated on a quarterly basis and designed to grow students in mind, body and soul! Our unique physical education classes get students out and moving in the community through hiking, bowling, and more!

The Details

We are so excited to kick off our inaugural school year and would love to have your family involved in this academic movement.
