Through the teaching of Kingdom Education, the elementary curriculum enables the students from kindergarten through fifth grade to develop a Biblical worldview. We provide a safe, caring environment where children can grow spiritually, academically, emotionally, and socially. On our campus, we encourage parental involvement during the school year through many volunteer opportunities in the classroom and via auxiliary organizations.
The Mental Math Challenge is a math enrichment program for students in the third, fourth, and fifth grades. This program challenges the students to further develop their mental math abilities. It also creates excitement about math. As part of the math curriculum, students practice oral combinations, such as 3x4+5-2x2=_______. The teacher recites the problem orally and the students mentally compute the numbers and answer immediately. Each class holds competitions to determine a class winner. All winners compete in a Mental Math Challenge to determine a Mental Math Champion for each grade. These challenges take place once a month. The monthly winners will compete at the end of each semester to determine a Semester Math Champion for each grade.
Students in grades 3-8 are eligible to participate in the ACSI Math Olympics. Each school enters three students to compete in the area of computation and three students in the reasoning category from each grade. In order to qualify for the Math Olympics, students take two timed grade-level tests in the areas of Arithmetic Computation and Mathematical Reasoning. The scores from these tests along with the students’ math grades are used to determine which students qualify for the Olympics.
The objectives of the ACSI Math Olympics are as follows:
to stimulate an interest in mathematics
to recognize the achievements of students in mathematics
to provide an opportunity to meet and fellowship with other mathematics-oriented students
to offer students an opportunity to glorify God in the use of their mathematical abilities beyond the classroom
The ACSI Math Olympics is a series of timed tests or rounds. All students take four tests with each test lasting 11 minutes.

EXCEL, Expanded Curriculum for Exceptional Learners, is designed to provide gifted educational opportunities to students in the 2nd-4th grades. EXCEL, based on the classical education approach, offers students the opportunity to pursue excellence in education through differentiated instructional experiences including creativity, problem-solving, and a focus on higher-level thinking. Students must qualify under the EXCEL guidelines to be eligible for the program. There are four criteria that are used for admittance: grades, standardized testing in reading and math, a mental ability test, and a creativity test. To remain in EXCEL, students must maintain an A average in all core subjects and exemplify EXCEL quality behavior and attitude in the EXCEL classroom. Students are responsible for making up any work that they miss because of EXCEL.
In EXCEL, we complete one multidisciplinary unit per quarter using a STEAM focus - Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Much of what we do will be project-based and done in collaboration with each other and members of our community. Please see the link to our blog below to stay up to date on what we're doing in our classroom!
