Lower School

Lower School Overview

Throughout the Lower School, children are challenged by warm-hearted Christian educators to achieve their highest level.  A structured academic program maximizes students’ ability to absorb new information, building the basic facts and patterns for cognitive growth.  Teachers collaborate with parents to grow each child’s character, offering low teacher-to-students ratio, exciting projects and social activities. Our Lower School is elementary-aged students and accepts children until age 11.
