A Christian school’s responsibility is not only to teach academics but also to fulfill the church’s God ordained role in carrying out the Christian education mandate (Deut. 6:7 and 2 Tim. 3:15 – 17). Students learn deeply by using a variety of methods such as active learning and motivational games. Kindergarten and Elementary years are two important stages where the students start to build a strong foundation in their spiritual lives, academic achievements, and social skills.
In Kindergarten, we start to put the base of their faith at a very young age through daily morning Bible stories that will help them see that God is real. This biblical values are also embedded in every subject delivered in class. The students also gain the opportunity to learn from real life experiences. We also support the students to develop their talents that God has given them.
In Elementary, we continue to develop each student’s skills and knowledge. We want to touch not only the students’ heads but their hearts and hands, too, in order for them to grow and develop holistically- in academics, spiritual, and life skills.
