Wednesday Elementary Classes [5 hour program]
On 30 select Wednesdays, students enjoy a Christ-centered campus experience. Classes are held in a clean, safe, ministry environment, with caring, God-fearing leaders. A variety of academic courses, educational activities, celebrations and socialization opportunities, are planned for our co-op program to leave a lasting impression upon the lives of our students and their families.
Classes are composed of carefully chosen books and resources, some of which parents must purchase. (see catalog)
Our Wednesday program is Charlotte Mason inspired with Hymn Study, Scripture Memory, Habit Training, Fine Arts, Nature Study and Kindergarten Living Math. Utilizing the Abeka Christian Worldview Readers for History and Science grades 1, 2, 3, we encourage Read Aloud time with Living Books and Copywork to be followed up at home, by the parent.
By 4th grade we transition to Abeka’s project based report books for History/Geography and introduce laboratory science with Christian Kids Explore Chemistry. A list of Living Books for science, is provided for independent reading at home.
A typical day at Grace and Glory campus classes, is both challenging and pleasurable, involving the work of the mind, the heart, and the hands; requiring individual effort from every student as well as group cooperation. Cultivating close connections, your student is never lost in the crowd. Class sizes are purposefully kept small to promote optimal learning.
Student work, behavior and participation is observed and assessed. Elementary students do not typically have weekly homework, however, our First-Fifth graders must participate in projects, reports and presentations, as well as two Showcases (Winter and Spring).
Campus experiences take place, under the watchful eyes of loving leaders who place spiritual growth along with academic growth, at the forefront of their ministry. Grace and Glory leaders, share a commitment to believe, follow and obey the teachings of God’s Word. We desire to serve and support families, as they partner with us. Our team is dedicated, continually growing individually and as a group, to better improve our school community.
