As a Christian ministry, we take the Biblical growth of our students very seriously! Our main priority is to teach and inspire our students to have a relationship with God through the study of the Bible, prayer, worship and the testimony of our faculty and staff. We are constantly seeking God’s direction in the way we teach our students. Our faculty and staff come together every morning for a Biblical teaching and prayer. We take prayer requests from our school families, and we truly and earnestly pray for all of them. We prayerfully choose the Bible curriculum for every year, but our main textbook is the Bible. Our school is blessed to have experienced Biblical leadership that is our Bible team. Our students have Bible class daily, and chapel every Wednesday. Below is our current Bible curriculum.
KINDERGARTEN AND ELEMENTARY
Focus – Superheroes of the Bible
Each week students learn a new Superhero Character Trait, a Superhero from the Old Testament that demonstrates that trait, and a corresponding Memory Verse.
Focus – Discovering the Bible
Weekly curriculum includes: a memory verse, character trait, “Talksheet” that opens discussion and reinforces the memory verse & character trait, and an overview of a book of the Bible. All classes include a prayer and worship time each day.
General Overview Of The Old Testament. Students learn what the main theme of each book in the Old Testament is about, along with a Keyword or phrase to help them remember. There is also a memory verse every week.

Bible Application. Students study practical ways to apply truths from the Bible to their everyday lives.
We are committed to prepare our students to make a difference in this world. Every subject is approached from a Christian perspective, and our students will find Scripture and biblical principles used to emphasize or illustrate concepts. The following is a list of curriculums used that help us tailor our differentiated instruction to meet our students’ needs.

Since the mid-1980s, Purposeful Design Publications, a division of ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International), has provided resources and assessments, including academically rigorous textbooks that are intentionally rooted in biblical truth, to equip schools and educators with the tools to eternally transform the hearts and minds of children.
PACE (Packets of Accelerated Christian Education) is a modified curriculum that is used for our ESE (Exceptional Student Education) students. PACE takes academic subject matter and divides it into bite-sized, achievable units. PACE integrates Godly character building lessons into the academic content. They also are carefully designed to develop thinking skills and create mastery learning. PACE allows each student to absorb subject material according to their own learning ability, with personalized teacher assistance.
When beginning with PACE, students are given an assessment/placement test to determine their starting level. As they progress through the PACE, students are regularly assessed through Check-ups that help determine areas that need further review, and help students toward mastery. PACE progress is documented at the end of each grading period, and at the end of the school year a summary report will be sent home, as well as put in the student’s file.
Our Enrichment/Elective program is designed to inspire, motivate and enable our typical and special needs students to achieve their full potential. Below are the different courses that we offer to our students.
