​ACADEMICS

 
Preschool: Through weekly themes, the children develop social and academic skills to prepare for the next level of learning.
 
Elementary School: Grace Lutheran Christian School provides the secure, nurturing environment that elementary school-age children need to explore and experiment. Our programs strive to instill a life-long love of learning and a quest for knowledge among elementary school students from Kindergarten through 4th grade.

 

Our reading program uses sight words, contextual clues, and phonics to enhance comprehension. The goal of our math program is to develop a solid foundation through hands-on experiences and discussion. Students learn to excel in solving problems, engaging ideas and creating solutions. Our students become active thinkers, makers and explorers of ideas. They accomplish this through academic skill development, imaginative abstract thinking, and organization and discipline.

 

Students are taught in self-contained classrooms with some departmentalization. Students annually celebrate a variety of traditional and special events. Parents are always welcome to participate in class activities.

Mrs. Franer and Kindergarten Students!

Middle SchoolThe energy of learning is apparent in Grace’s Middle School classes. It takes motivational and challenging curriculum, the strong moral values of a Christian-based education and the guidance of experienced teachers to show them how to become responsible and independent learners. Our Middle School is a four-year sequence for grades five through eight.

 

Our students study core academic subjects: English/writing, math, science, history and literature. Their education is enriched through additional classes in art, music/band, physical education, and Spanish. Grace Lutheran Christian School balances these academics with daily religious studies to build the moral character that these students will need to take their place as community leaders. Technology and the use of computers are woven throughout the curriculum and instruction.

 

Middle School students are encouraged to participate in the various life-enriching activities offered at Grace, including competitive sports, community service programs and more.

 

Grace’s Middle School academic program emphasizes a respect for diverse learning styles, team and interdisciplinary teaching, and varied experiences with cooperative learning, research and group presentations. Our teachers create opportunities for cognitive growth while incorporating exploratory experiences for enrichment, as they prepare students for a smooth transition to high school and beyond.
