Elementary

At MCCS we build strong foundations not only in academics but also in our walk with Christ. A strong foundation is essential to academic success. copy-of-img_5485

Students in grades 1-5 are challenged by classes in Bible, reading, language, spelling, math, social studies, science, penmanship, and creative writing. These students also enjoy weekly classes of music, choir, physical education, art, band, computer technology, and library.

The weekly chapel program is a time of learning as well as a time of encouragement and fun designed for the age of the students. Each week students participate in the chapel service by presenting vocal and instrumental selections, giving their salvation testimonies, and reciting scripture or poetry.

MCCS offers the opportunity for students to be exposed to a well-rounded curriculum while keeping Christ integrated in all areas of school life. The salvation of our students and their spiritual development are emphasized while striving for academic success. These are key components at MCCS as we maximize our youngest student’s God-given gifts and build a foundation for future academic success. We build this foundation through developmentally appropriate activities and positive social interactions set in a Christian environment.

Mount Calvary Christian School places a great amount of care into the curriculum plan each year. A systematic review of all curriculum is completed on an annual basis to ensure the information we teach our students is current and relevant in today’s educational climate. Special attention is placed on a specific subject each year, and a thorough evaluation of that curriculum ensures families that MCCS is best preparing your child to succeed academically.In addition to reviewing the school’s curriculum, much attention is placed on vertically integrating the curriculum between grade levels. Meetings are regularly held to assess each classes progress as well as to discuss the individual needs of special students within the class.The result of the diligent work of the school’s curriculum committee is a complete educational experience that allows graduating seniors to excel at the college level.
