The Building Blocks of a Classical Christian Education
Our First-Grade, integrated curriculum covers the core areas of mathematics, phonics, spelling, grammar, science, the Bible, and history. Also offered are music, art, and physical education to create a rich experience filled with opportunities for students to explore new skills and ideas. Our curriculum aims at mastery of the building blocks of knowledge in each academic area with methods and content that are based upon proven educational research. We are consistently amazed by what our students can accomplish.
An example of our integrated curriculum for first graders is their study of the chronological cycles of history – beginning with the ancient civilizations and continuing through the fall of the Roman Empire. They hear fun stories about sea monsters from the Odyssey and build upon this in the higher grades when they read the Odyssey and the Iliad. When they learn about ancient civilizations in history, they also learn what the ancients studied in science such as the stars, geology, and weather.
