They will soar on wings like Eagles... Isaiah 40:31

Our Overall Goal

Second graders are enthusiastic and curious about their world!  Their reading skills dramatically improve, as they become independent readers.  Small motor skills are refined.  Desiring structure, they function best in an orderly classroom with predictable procedures. 

Specifically, the Academy’s second-grade curriculum goals are to promote reading independence, strengthen mathematical problem-solving skills, develop critical thinking skills, and instill Christian character traits that are “others centered.”
