STREAM Education

Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics make up our STREAM focus. While Christ is always number 1, our curriculum focuses on each of the STREAM areas to provide a 21st Century teaching and learning experience for teachers and students.

1:1 Chromebooks

Students in grades 4 through 8 take advantage of mobile learning with individualized Chromebooks designed to promote communication, research, and cloud-based communication, collaboration and creative design.

Project Lead The Way

Project Lead The Way is a curriculum designed to engage learners through hands-on, problem-based learning activities reflective of real-world problems. Students in all grades learn basic principles of engineering and software coding in an environment where 21st Century Learning can thrive.

Fine Arts

Students in all grades receive musical training through the promotion of individualized talents. Each year students are given multiple platforms to shine their musical talents, whether it is during church services or onstage at our annual musicals.

Robotics

Students have the opportunity to explore the rapidly rising field of robotics through the elementary Lego WeDo's, or the middle school, Lego MindStorm robots. The use of the Lego robots expose students to creative exploration or advanced programming required to complete assigned tasks.

Inquiry-Based Learning

Our teachers strive to take an inquiry-based teaching approach to classroom instruction. The goal of inquiry-based learning is to trigger student curiosity by posing questions, problems or scenarios. The use of inquiry-based learning can act as a motivational tool to engage learners.

Engineering Club

Once a week, students in grades 4 through 8 have the option to participate in an after school engineering club. Students learn about the different areas of engineering and then complete activities related to the specific area. Students in grades k-3 learn about engineering during class time.

Field Trips

We believe in the power of learning outside the confines of the classrooms and therefore all students in grades kindergarten through 8th grade are given multiple opportunities to learn on various fun and educational field trips. Sometimes the best way to motivate a student is to leave the classroom from time to time.
