Lower School | 1st-4th Grades
The Lower School employs a balanced literacy approach which includes shared, guided, modeled, and independent reading and writing instruction. Word study is given specific instructional attention and is embedded in the study of literature and writing. Students explore and analyze truths in God’s world through units that incorporate social studies, science, Bible, and literacy content. Mathematical study includes numeration, geometry, measurement, probability, operations, and algebraic readiness.
As students progress through Central, they grow in their ability to take risks, solve problems, be comfortable in struggle, think critically, and apply their learning to new contexts.
