Much of our curriculum for preschool and elementary is based on the Abeka scope and sequence. While many of the Abeka materials are used, we carefully supplement or choose other materials when they are more appropriate.
We emphasize communication skills, believing that to meet our goals, students need to be able to speak, read, write, and listen effectively. Our 6th grade uses research-backed curricula from a variety of both Christian and secular publishers to meet and exceed Idaho State Standards and to foster an inquiry-based approach to education.
Our staff is provided an "in-service and preparation" day every other Friday. We request staff and students use these days to plan dentist and doctor appointments and activities that would take them away from the classroom.
Although we do not require a uniform, we believe in a Biblical standard of modesty. The detailed guidelines are published in the student handbook.
The child-to-teacher ratio for all pre-school classes will be based on a predetermined points system established by the city, and will not exceed city code limits. We strive to maintain smaller class sizes in the elementary and middle school and have averaged 16-18 per class. However, based upon enrollment, classes may be larger.
It is our mission to help parents prepare their children to lead a victorious Christian life. Through prayer, the Word of God, and by the power of the Holy Spirit we will:
- Help build the foundations for knowing God, our Creator, and belief in His Only Son, Jesus Christ our Savior.
- Foster in each child a love of God and the courage and confidence that comes from knowing that God loves them.
- Teach our children to speak, read, and write, so that they will be able to communicate effectively.
- Teach our children God’s order in math, science, and social sciences that will give them knowledge of the world around them.
- Foster in our children the learning skills, social skills, and behavioral skills that will help them succeed in school and in society.
- Help nurture in our children their God-given strengths and talents to allow them to serve God.
- Develop in each child the understanding that they are responsible for themselves, the choices they make, and the consequences of their actions.
- Create a sense of Christian love and community.
“But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57
