Village Christian School is committed to students being “College-bound
from Kindergarten, Christ-centered for life.” English Language Arts,
Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies are presented in the context
of a Christian worldview by faculty who not only love Christ and love
children, but who also love learning.
The unique Elementary STEAM (Science, Technology, Exercise, Art, and Math)
Initiative engages students with open-ended activities designed to allow
them to create, assess, and improve their ideas to solve real world problems
within the core curriculum. Working collaboratively, thinking critically,
and communicating effectively are benchmarks of the program. With enthusiastic
teachers who encourage questioning why things work as they do, learning
becomes a chance for students to apply their skills and knowledge, while
understanding that there is frequently more than one correct answer. This
approach results in rigorous and relevant interdisciplinary learning.
Village Christian’s 21st Century elementary students are active and engaged learners prepared to
succeed in middle school and beyond.
In the primary grades, students master the foundational skills that are
necessary to support further learning. As they progress through the upper
elementary grades, they start applying those skills and they learn to
think critically and work collaboratively to meet objectives.
Weekly time in the computer lab for JK through third grade classes is used
to develop the technology skills necessary for academic and career success.
Fourth and fifth grade students are issued a Chromebook to use both in
class and at home.
The Bible curriculum introduces students to God through the stories the
Bible tells about His interaction with humanity. The specialist programs
in PE, music, and art help to develop the whole child and give opportunities
for competencies and strengths to emerge which can be enjoyed for a lifetime.
The goal of the Village Christian Elementary School is not only to lay
a solid spiritual foundation, but also to help our students become responsible,
self-motivated, and disciplined lifelong learners.
