Request Information

As students enter Lower School in First Grade through Fifth Grade, they are secure in an environment that provides consistency between each grade and division. Students flourish as they are exposed to new concepts and challenged to expand their understanding. Daily Chapel and Bible lessons also deepen their understanding of God’s word and its role in their faith.

Lower Elementary 

First - Second Grades

In first and second grade, our teaching teams provide an encouraging and caring environment in which students build a strong foundation of academic knowledge. Weekly Bible lessons also introduce character lessons that set a pace and expectation for the classroom. Classroom activities encourage active reading and comprehension, strengthen math skills, and expose students to new content and ability. Whether it’s writing about an important person in history, recreating an invention, reciting a favorite Bible verse, crafting a poem, or melting crayons to learn about the phases of matter—our early Lower School years are filled with the wonder of learning.

Third - Fourth Grades

As CCA students enter the third grade, they are challenged to become increasingly independent and dig deeper into their academic and spiritual knowledge. Students begin to rotate classes by subject giving them increased responsibility and exposure to different teaching styles and expertise. Teachers in these grades are empowered to be subject matter experts, focusing on one to two key subjects; guiding students in the further development of abstract and critical thinking skills within subject areas. Their passion for these areas of knowledge, and their ability to focus on facilitating a deeper exploration of a subject, are a powerful combination that leads to dynamic, purpose-filled learning—ensuring that every student in the grade benefits from time spent in their classroom.
