Lower School (K4-6th)
As a parent, you understand that these years are some of the most influential and important years in your child’s life so of course want your child to have the best start possible when it comes to education. We understand that at this age, it’s more than just learning the fundamental skills. We want to help create an environment where your student feels loved and supported enough to make mistakes and to get back up and try again.
One of the benefits of a private, Christian education is the more individualized attention each student receives. Through traditionally small class sizes, our teachers are able to really get to know your child, how they learn best, and what they need a little extra help with. All of our teachers work to integrate a biblical worldview into their class curriculum so that even in the seemingly mundane, your student is learning more about Jesus.

Spiritual Life – Our students have Bible as a part of their daily curriculum. In addition to their Bible lessons, our second and third graders have the opportunity to do Bible drills on Fridays. Once a month, our Lower School has chapel where they sing, worship together, and our sixth graders help act out a Bible story for our little ones.
