Our Academics

Our faith permeates all that is taught and is an integral part of the entire school program and day.
Areas of instruction include:

  • English & Language Arts
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Spelling
  • Penmanship
  • Art
  • Music
  • Health/Physical Education
  • Instructional Technology
  • Spanish

While lessons are planned with the entire class in mind, the staff is aware that each child is a unique creation of God and strives to meet his/her special needs, interests, and abilities. Lessons include whole group instruction with opportunities for re-teaching and enrichment. Across grades K-8, students are separated into smaller instructional groups for Mathematics and English & Language Arts for three class periods a day.

In the delivery of the instructional programs to students, the school utilizes a more self-contained classroom organization for grades Pre-K through 5. Students remain with their homeroom teachers for instruction in most subject areas. In grades 6-8, a more departmentalized approach is employed. Students move from classroom to classroom for the subjects to be taught.
