What curriculum do you use?

We use the A Beka curriculum. It is a Christian based program and was first developed in 1972. Our founder has used this curriculum for over 30 years and has been able to see the end result. The students always did well with the curriculum. It is developed upon tried and proven concepts that work and are logical. It makes learning fun and provides the foundation for a successful educational life. Students generally always tested out one to two grades higher in their skills.

Do you represent any particular religion?

No. We are Christian based but non-denominational. However being Christian based we are very concerned about character development. Therefore we teach basic Christian values such a honesty, dependability, respect, etc. This is done with music, stories, and poems.

What is your discipline policy?

We use a 3 strike policy for behavior problems. If a problem occurs, the child will be talked to and the issue discussed between teacher and child. The child will place a sticker on their chart indicating a “strike one.” If a second instance occurs, then a “strike two” will occur, another discussion, and a second sticker. Should another instance occur, a red card will be sent home indicating a need for a conference with the parent. The red card will need a parent signature and be returned to the teacher. In any of these instances time out may also be used. Rewards will also be utilized to encourage good behavior.
