How do the Littlest Students at Ad Fontes Academy Spend Their Days?

In the Joyful Pursuit of Loving to Learn!

Giving your child the right start is paramount. We are passionate about assisting you in meeting the spiritual, academic, and social needs of your kindergartner. We achieve this through smaller class sizes, qualified teachers, and an academic program that is challenging and deeply rooted in Christ’s teachings. Our remarkable teachers play a pivotal role. They identify and nurture your child’s gifts, fostering confidence, and cultivating a genuine passion for learning.

The Building Blocks of a Classical Christian Education

Kindergarten marks the beginning of an educational journey centered on discovering the beauty and joy inherent in God’s creation. Here, students actively develop essential skills in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and number sense. Our classroom becomes an exciting and engaging space where teachers foster a love for good literature, scripture, poetry, and prayer.

Young children possess an extraordinary ability to memorize and a natural curiosity to absorb knowledge. We embrace and nurture this innate desire throughout our curriculum. From grammar jingles and poems to Bible verses and math facts, children eagerly memorize a wealth of information. This process not only excites them but also lays a sturdy foundation for their future endeavors.

At the core of a Classical Christian education lies the heart of the child. Our focus is on instilling the fundamentals of obedience, deepening their understanding of God, honoring Him through their best efforts, and nurturing a spirit of love and service towards others.

I appreciate the support in parenting that is given by teaching the children the importance of respect, obedience and responsibility. The focus of the curriculum is not just about ‘reading, writing, and arithmetic.’ It is focused on the character of the child.”
