School Notes

  • Our early childhood program offers flexible full-day and half-day schedules for Junior PreK (18 mos.+), 3K, 4K, and Kindergarten. Teachers use a unified competency-based assessment plan to share progress with parents within the five domains of the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards. In addition to literacy development activities, students learn and grow through art, music, physical education, and weekly chapel. Time spent outdoors is a priority.
  • Literacy Focus: Biblical, traditional (reading, writing, speaking, listening), mathematical
  • Experienced teachers guide lower elementary students to develop spiritually, academically, socially, and artistically. Small class sizes allow for individualized attention to student growth. Students have access to current digital learning tools with 1:1 technology device ratios. 
  • Literacy Focus: Musical, visual, digital, environmental + Biblical, traditional, mathematical 
  • Upper elementary students experience an academic environment intentionally designed to ease the transition from elementary to high school with the guidance of a lead teacher and departmentalized teachers for religion, math, and music. To meet unique student needs and prepare them for a wide range of high school approaches, students participate daily in digital and offline, collaborative and individual learning activities. 
  • Literacy Focus: Media, information, financial, community + Biblical, traditional, mathematical, musical, visual, digital, environmental
