Crosspoint's Elementary School offers a rigorous academic program based on Biblical principles for pre-kindergarten through 6th grade students. The program provides a solid foundation of knowledge in each of the core subject areas and emphasizes the development of critical thinking skills. Our Kindergarten program is full-day. We also offer a dedicated pre-Kindergartener program starting at age 3.
We seek to develop the following academic and spiritual fundamentals in our young scholars:
Students receive an overview of the Old and New Testaments and Bible doctrine, and are encouraged to develop Christian traits through the study of Bible characters and the life of Christ. Students attend weekly chapel services.
Language Arts uses traditional readers and literature sets to develop phonics, spelling and reading skills and teaches students the grammar and composition skills necessary to communicate effectively.
Mathematics emphasizes basic math facts and skills as a foundation for advanced problem solving.
Patriotism and God's sovereignty in historical events are taught as the students explore American and world history and geography.
Science demonstrates God's glory and order through His creation.
Elementary students at every grade level learn basics in Spanish, art, music and physical education one day each week.
Elementary courses use curriculum from ABeka, Bob Jones, ACSI, and McMillan-McGraw Hill.
Each year elementary students in first through fifth grades take the TerraNova Standardized Test, published though McGraw-Hill.
