We at Calvary Christian School seek to enrich a child’s life
through a well-balanced, Christ-centered classroom. Education includes the areas of academic,
emotional, social, physical, and spiritual growth.
The Kindergarten program is designed to reach students who
are ready to learn. The program is one
of exposure and not mastery. We do
emphasize academics over simple play and we hope that every student will
succeed in the endeavors and challenges given.
Academically, there are several areas stressed. Listening skills, auditory discrimination,
visual discrimination, alphabet recognition, recognition of the short and long
vowel sounds, blending of letters, and finally, reading words and sentences.
Writing of letters and words is also taught as well as beginning math concepts.
The concepts presented are not meant to be exhaustive, but
rather to help a child to have a sense of knowledge and accomplishment.
We strive to stimulate learning through the exposure to
various skills and to open a desire for more learning.
A Christ-centered attitude within the classroom provides the
atmosphere for godly learning and behavior.
Teaching God’s principles and relating His Word in all the
concepts gives a child direction and points him or her to Christ. This gives the opportunity for a child to see
the truth through actual living, and enables the child to apply those
principles in life. Thus, a
well-balanced Christian education is provided.
