Lower School Curriculum

Our Lower School Curriculum

The curriculum of St. John's Christian Academy is organized to provide a continuous path of study that prepares students for success in a four-year college university.  In addition, our curriculum integrates Biblical instruction and a Christian worldview in all subject areas.  Each school day begins with the Pledge of Allegiance and the Lord’s Prayer.

Preschool (Grades K3-K4)

The goals of our pre-school curriculum include the following: Christian character education; language development; phonological awareness: rhyming, clapping, syllables, and alliteration; recognition of letters and beginning sounds; recognition of long and short vowel sounds; color, shape, and number recognition (1-20); counting; sequencing, predicting, and graphing; problem solving; social and emotional development..  Students in K3 also participate in weekly physical education classes and receive daily Bible instruction.  In K4 students attend weekly chapel services that include participatory praise and worship through music as well as relevant Bible-based messages.  In addition to participating in physical education, K4 students also attend weekly music and library classes.

Elementary school (K5-5th grade)

The elementary curriculum is designed to give students the needed background for the college preparatory curriculum used in grades 6-12. In addition to reading, English, math, science, and social studies, the students are given instruction in elementary music, art, and physical education. In addition, students in K5-2nd grade receive basic Spanish instruction while students in grades 3-5 receive instruction in computer literacy. Students participate in daily Bible instruction and attend weekly chapel services that include participatory praise and worship through music as well as relevant Bible-based messages.
