Lower Elementary (K-3)

The lower elementary classes consist of  kindergarten through third grades. The classes integrate Biblical teaching into our core curricula of language arts, math, writing, social studies, science, and health.  Students are also enriched with classes in chapel, library, art, music, and physical education classes on a weekly basis. The lower grades are a critical time for students to not only learn fundamental concepts and mechanics through a variety of learning approaches but also to develop learning skills and Biblical truths that will set the stage for a lifetime of success.
