READING & LANGUAGE
Abeka Language Arts
Daily Oral Language
Students in K5 through fifth grade are taught reading and phonics primarily through the Abeka program. Daily Oral Language instills solid grammar skills for life. Students are encouraged to practice reading skills through Accelerated Reader. They also enjoy going to the computer lab for instruction and AR assessments.
Math and science are essential elements in the academic achievement of our students. Abeka math builds a solid foundation for math facts paired with Scott Foresman math that provides critical thinking and problem-solving experiences. We use Bob Jones Press for our 5th grade math because it is more focused on synthesis, problem solving and critical thinking. Our science curriculum, Purposeful Design, is cutting-edge. It enables students to learn and practice critical thinking and provides them with top of the line rigorous science.
SOCIAL STUDIES & FINE ARTS

Our physical education program offers students fun, fitness activities and team sports. Students in 4th and 5th grade participate in our Junior Pro basketball program.
Purposeful Design Bible (ACSI) is taught to help students develop and grow their Christian faith.
