Our Curriculum

Our curriculum core is the A Beka system. It is one of America’s most respected Christian learning systems for over 50 years and is recognized as the standard of excellence in the publishing of textbooks and other educational materials.DSC00399-300x168

The A Beka system approach to Christian education keeps learning lively, interesting, and memorable.

Our curriculum materials have been developed as a result of 50 years of actual classroom experience and is used nationwide in many of America’s most respected Christian schools.

We offer a well rounded approach to early childhood learning. Students are taught Phonics, Numbers, Handwriting, Math, Bible, Spanish, Music, Story time, Recess and Playtime as well as our daily classes offer art and readiness skills.  This helps to work their gross and fine motor skills.  We also teach Language Development which helps the children to develop language and listening skills as they learn about God’s creation and the people and world around them.
