Lower School

Prince Avenue Christian School seeks to offer a firm academic foundation based on the truth of God’s word.  Beginning in preschool and continuing throughout each grade, the academic curriculum is purposefully taught through a Biblical worldview with a focus on a lifelong pursuit of God and His truth.

Prince Avenue teachers and staff encourage and disciple students throughout their educational experience.  Weekly Chapel gives students an opportunity to worship and to hear God’s word.  Biblical integration is found in all aspects of the curriculum as students are building a foundational Christian world view.

The Pre-Kindergarten curriculum begins with Bible, social and community awareness, fundamental math, and early reading instruction from a phonics and phonemic awareness base.  As students transition into kindergarten and continue from 1st through 5th grades, reading instruction from a phonics approach continues and is expanded with an emphasis on exposure and exploration into literature and independent reading.  Students’ spiritual foundation is strengthened as Bible is included as an academic subject and supplemented with a robust scripture memorization program. Academics are rounded out with strong fundamental instruction in math, English, expressive writing, science, and social studies.  Also included in the lower school curriculum are enrichment classes including Art, Music, Spanish, and Computer Keyboarding. Daily interaction with Smart Boards, iPads, and classroom desktop computers helps students develop 21st century skills that enable them to take advantage of the vast world of knowledge and interactive learning so prevalent in education today.

At Prince Avenue Christian School, we understand that decisions regarding your child’s education are of utmost importance to your family.  I welcome the opportunity to discuss what our school can do to assist you in not only raising your children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, but also in providing an environment in which they can develop the talents with which God has equipped them and to see His plans for them unfold and develop over their formal educational years.
