Curriculum

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.
