Grammar School Curriculum
Curriculum in each grade is built like a scaffold on previous learning. Each grade a stepping stone towards higher learning.
Each year revisits the past and grows knowledge in greater depth and breadth. Aligning to the philosophy of classical education, each year is based on the timeline of history and all the other subjects are integrated meaningfully. This chart represents the whole picture of our grammar school learning plan.
The links in this chart are meant to give you further insight into the rationale behind the chosen curriculum. Remember though, our teachers make learning come alive, and curriculum is a tool. In addition to the curriculum outlined here, there are a number of ways our students learn beyond the confines of a textbook.
Bible is taught in a sequential pattern in each grade and biblical principles are integrated into every part of the day. Students practice using Christ-like character qualities. They attend chapel once a week and a daily morning assembly. Even our discipline process is a reflection on the emphasis we place on living a life in-line with the Bible.
Each class has a community service project they are involved with. They are sometimes given a project to work on and other times are brought to realize where a need is and how to solve it.
Class attend a learning field trip each month. These are direct extensions of their in-class learning to amplify concepts and give them a real life experience to make learning memorable.
Sports programs like soccer and basketball offer team building skills, physical conditioning and competitive accomplishments. Children learn through actively engaging in physical exercise and working together.
Extra Curricular Experience
We work to create opportunities for our students to ‘show off’ the learning they have worked so hard to accomplish. We have a Spelling Bee, Capstone Projects, Speech Meets, Athletics, Musical Education and more to celebrate learning.
