To promote academic excellence and foster spiritual growth through a college preparatory curriculum in a Christian environment.
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.
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
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, physical education, and computer literacy. Each school day begins with the Pledge of Allegiance and the Lord’s Prayer.
Middle School (6th-8th)
The middle grades serve as a bridge from the lower school to the upper school. Students are given a variety of opportunities to explore their interests and recognize their strengths. Exploratory classes are offered in Christian service, computers, debate, library, and physical education. This level of curriculum is designed to meet the individual differences of students particularly in the areas of reading and mathematics. In addition to a formal study of the Bible, students will be involved in Chapel, Christian outreach, and spiritual guidance. Core courses include math, English, social studies, science, and literature.
High School (9th-12th)
The high school curriculum design ensures that students are able to meet the needs of an increasingly dynamic and complicated society. Entering college students must be prepared to undertake rigorous academic coursework. They must be equipped with organizational skills, advanced writing and reading abilities, critical thinking skills, and prerequisite math concepts. SJCA provides a demanding college preparatory curriculum that includes courses offered at the college preparatory, honors, advance placement and dual credit levels. Qualifying students can earn up to 36 college credits through Trident Technical College while in high school. Additional details are available in the Student-Parent Handbook.
