Elementary Program

Our Elementary program is a strong one, focusing on the basics of reading, writing, language skills, math, science and social studies.  Our students begin learning cursive handwriting in the second grade, which gives them an opportunity to adequately master manuscript printing before moving on to the more advanced cursive.

There are many fun events in the elementary!  Besides the normal class work, we offer weekly classes in Art, Computers & Library, and elementary Spanish.  The children get opportunities throughout the year to perform for their fellow students and for their parents in our weekly chapel services, special Thanksgiving and/or Christmas programs, and Awards Ceremonies.

The yearly Field Day events are a favorite!  All students, grades 1-6, are mixed up into color teams and they compete for top ribbons in our field events.  Water Balloon Toss, Egg Races, Basketball Relays, Sponge Relays, Obstacle Courses, and Tug-of-War are some of the favorite events.

In addition to fun, there are great academic events each year.  All elementary classes participate in the Regional ACSI Spelling Bee, which is hosted in Pensacola, where our students compete against other Christian schools in our region.  The Math Olympics is a similar competition held in Niceville where our students Grades 3-6 conquer challenging math skills in grade-level competitions.  Students in grades 4-6 compete each year in the Geography Bee.

Parts of Speech Parent / Student Resources

One of the most difficult transitions for new students is often with grammar.  Our desire is to help smooth the way for our new students with regards to the English curriculum.  Several of our teachers have put together some practice exercises in grammar for this purpose.

There are two components for the practice - a written PDF document explaining the 8 parts of speech and 8 narrated power point videos that offer further explanation.  The ideal situation would be to complete the PDF document in conjunction with watching the appropriate video.

To receive the 8 powerpoint videos, please email the school and ask to have them emailed to you.
