Early Elementary

General Pre-K – 1st grade curriculum

To prepare our students to serve Christ in this competitive, global world of the 21st century, we are passionately committed to academic excellence. Our curriculum is comprehensive, college preparatory, and taught within a Christian framework. Beginning in pre-kindergarten, our curriculum is designed to lay a solid academic, intellectual, and spiritual foundation for our students. SCS students are challenged to excel as they are being prepared for a lifetime of faith and service. The results are young men and women who know how to think deeply and broadly while transferring application and evaluation of knowledge to all subject areas.

Awarded model school for the structure of intellect

Pre-Kindergarten students participate in activities to “build the cognitive and perceptual strengths that empower students to transition from the concrete stage to the symbolic comprehension required in elementary school.” The Certified Learning program, included for all Kindergarten students, “optimally prepares each student for the transition to the more advanced curriculum of the middle grades.” (SOI Systems)
