Each day begins with Bible class (or chapel). Basic Bible stories and truths are taught and applied to the students’ daily lives. Lower elementary students are not administered Bible tests, but they are required to memorize Bible verses.
Our elementary curriculum focuses on mathematics and language arts (i.e., grammar, reading, spelling, and writing). Reading is taught through phonics, and then an emphasis on comprehension follows. Mathematics begins with drilling and mastering the facts. After facts have been mastered, the students can begin to learn concepts on higher learning levels.
History, geography, science, and health are also important subjects that we teach. The students not only learn the facts about these courses, but they also learn them with a biblical worldview. Science class is predicated upon a belief in creationism, and history is based on a rejection of revisionist history. No attempts are made to hide the faith of our Founding Fathers, or the belief in a Creator by the founders of modern science. The facts of history and science are taught with integrity and accuracy.
Achievement testing is administered each year, but its primary purpose is evaluative. We use individual results to track the progress of each student, and overall results are analyzed to evaluate the effectiveness of our instruction.
