Curriculum

Please read below to learn more about the curriculum of the Elementary Campus.

  • Reading: Grades 1 – 3 use Houghton Mifflin Houghton Mifflin which exposes the
    students to a phonics-based curriculum that showcases good literature. The
    integrated curricular approach allows for the students to see the “reasons” for the
    reading/writing process. Reading, grammar and spelling are integrated in this
    textbook series.
  • Reading: Grades 4 – 6 use trade novels that align with content areas (Social
    Studies or Science) as well as relevant non-fiction literature that aligns with state
    standards. To meet grammar requirements, we use the Shurley English program
    which helps students break down sentences by using a “sentence flow”.
  • Language Arts: Grades 1-6, Shurley English-students learn the parts of language
    through the use of jingles.
  • Writing: All students, kindergarten through sixth grade spend time creating a
    portfolio of required pieces. Students are taught writing techniques using the 4
    Square writing method and the 6 + 1 traits writing method.
