Academics

Students in our elementary program (Grades 1-5), experience learning in a nurturing classroom environment.  Each day begins with pledges, songs, and prayer. Students attend chapel once a week. All subjects and activities are biblically integrated with the distinct purpose of imparting a view of life that is God-centered. We also seek to encourage each student’s personal relationship with Jesus Christ, guiding them in forming Christ-like attitudes and a Godly value system.

Areas of Study

Bible

1st-5th Grade

Children form beliefs and values early in life which influence how students interpret knowledge and govern how they act. Our Bible curriculum is designed to help students develop these areas from a solid Christian perspective. In an age of competing worldviews, this curriculum will help young students formulate a Biblical perspective of the world and then live accordingly.

History

1st Grade

Students learn about our nation’s origin, formation, and growth. They will gain an understanding about family, community, state, and country within the confines of God’s wonderful world. 

2nd Grade

Students step back into history and learn what life was like in our country’s early days. Groups of people that made valuable contributions to our American heritage are studied along with the history of the flag, patriotic songs, and holidays.

3rd Grade

The history of America is experienced through the lives of men and women who have played an important role in the forming of our great country. The emphasis is on patriotism, character development, and the contributions of these famous Americans.  Map skills are also an integral part of the 3rd grade history curriculum.

4th Grade 

There are two semesters of history in 4th grade.  The first semester is designated to cover world history and geography beginning in the 1700s and ending in present day.  The second semester is an immersion into the rich heritage of Texas history. 

5th Grade

Students study world history and geography. The text takes a narrative approach that brings to life famous people, world events, and Christianity vs. other religions.  Continents and countries are studied, along with their cultures and way of life.
