Our goal is to provide an atmosphere that fosters the love and challenge of learning while promoting and teaching Christian values. We offer enrichment and academic classes from a Biblical Christian worldview for students from preschool through high school in an environment which stresses Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. “Loving one another, and working together with one heart and purpose.” Philippians 2:2 For Parents, our goal is to provide: Academic instruction to enhance their efforts as they fully accept the biblical responsibility to “train up a child in the way he should go.” (Proverbs 22:6) Support for members through prayer and commitment, sharing educational information, and the sharing of gifts or talents given by God to help one another. An environment that fosters and encourages relationships among children and adults that honor the Lord. For Students, our goal is to provide: Consistent opportunities to interact with a group of children and teachers and to learn the importance and blessing of respecting authority. Encouragement and re-enforcement of the character traits of attentiveness, cooperation and responsibility.

In this class we will focus on one letter of the alphabet each week. Letters are the building blocks for reading and the goal of this class is to make each letter fun! Using a hands-on approach, students will engage in fun letter based activities that will reinforce their letter recognition and beginning sounds skills. You won’t want to miss out on all the alphabet fun! Young Writer’s Workshop Ages: 6-9 years Teacher: Angie Blair Material Fees: $15 per session Prerequisite: Student must be able to do copy work. Required Materials: Shar pened pencils, er aser , extr a writing paper. * This class has a 6 student minimum. Description: Real-life writing activities based on some of our favorite picture books. Isn’t it fun to write letters, notes, postcards, invitations, or clever messages? We will also work on making lists, journal entries, creating how-to instructions, and many other fun writing activities. Weekly activities will be catered to varying levels of writing abilities. Copy work and group activities will help our beginner writers while an increase in independent work will help our experienced writers grow in confidence. We will have a great time connecting reading, writing, & fun! Arts & Crafts Ages: 6-8 years Teacher: Kr isti Yand Material Fees: $30 per session Required Materials: Cover -up shirt for messy project days. Description: In this class, we will cr eate master pieces by following step-by-step instructions for projects using various media including crayon, paint, glue, shaving cream, salt, foam, newspaper, marker, and oil pastels.

This world history program will cover the Roman Empire, Christianity in Britain, the Byzantine Empire, the rise of Islam, Dynasties of China, the Ottoman Empire, Portugal, Martin Luther, and the Americas.

Art Ages: 9-12 years Teacher: J oe Ber g Material Fees: $30 per session ($20 per session for repeating students) Description: We will spend much of our time this year again working with our primary art tool, our eyes. Seeing well and appreciatively is worth practicing often, even when we don’t have artist materials in hand. And because art, properly understood, acknowledges the relational nature of God’s workmanship, we will then practice the creativity He gave us in admiration and imitation of His own. We’ll add fresh projects, techniques and materials to those we learned last year, such as perspective, texture, structure, dimensional art, and prints. We’ll also review the techniques we learned this year, enhancing them with further attention, technique and insight. Beginners will get a lot of information, but also plenty of one-on-one attention. Expectations will be tailored, with each student’s advances quickly noted and strongly reinforced. Homework: At least one hour weekly should be spent examining random objects and then drawing them, using whichever media the student enjoys. As in all learning, more quality time means more progress. Discussion also helps stimulate observation and seat ideas, so two students, or a student and parent, looking at and troubleshooting things together is time well spent. Hot idea: a quiet evening time of reading aloud and concurrent sketching can be very profitable in many ways. I always enjoy seeing and sharing the progress gained during various drawing opportunities, so students will be asked to have their homework opened on the table for me at the outset of each class. 1st Hour 9:00-9:55 continued The Myth—Drama Ages: 10 year s old and up Teacher: Emilie Rickman Material Fees: $10 for the year Required Materials: 1” notebook binder, writing paper, pencils. *This class has a 5 student minimum.

This includes learning the ins & outs of acting, becoming confident with speaking in front of an audience, and ultimately performing a splendid, end of the year production. We will be using different games, including a monologue and dialogue; along with other exercises necessary to learn the skills to perform. The students will get the chance to create their own costumes and props, along with developing their character for the big performance. Ready for a big adventure?
