An Abundant Feast of Learning 

 

School hours are as follows:

Kindergarten - Monday - Thursday 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

1st - 5th Grade - Monday-Thursday 9:00 AM- 2:00 PM

6th Grade-8th Grade - Monday-Thursday, 9:00 AM-2:00 PM, Friday 9:00 AM-1:00 PM

 

During this time, our day is filled with short lessons that include: Bible, Poetry, Reading, Handwriting, Copywork, Dictation, Science, Natural History, Nature Study, Math, Writing, Foreign Language, Composer and Artist Study,  Art, Music,  Handicraft, and Physical Education.  Fridays are used as a day for families to reinforce learning at home. We love how this allows children plenty of time to play outside and pursue personal interests. 

 

How do students learn what is necessary with shortened days? We maintain extremely low student-teacher ratios. Teachers are able to spend more one-on one time with the children, differentiating instruction to fit their needs. Learning is more about quality than quantity. With smaller classes, we are able to cut down on wasted time during our school day. We also require that parents commit to a very high degree of involvement in their child’s education.
