Student Support

The primary goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes a love of learning and positive self-esteem, while challenging students to fully utilize their unique talents. The curriculum in conjunction with classroom instruction is designed to provide each student with a strong foundation for intellectual, social and Christian growth within the appropriate developmental framework. In addition to the core curriculum the lower school is pleased to offer the following support services:

  • Reading resource is provided for those students who need additional support and strengthening of skills that are presented in the classroom. This resource is available to meet the needs of the identified students whether they need individual services or smaller group settings. As mastery of skills occurs students may no longer need this intervention. The reading resource teacher also administers diagnostic testing three times yearly to students in kindergarten, pre-first, first, and second grades.
  • Math resource class provides the opportunity for students in first, second, third, and fourth grades to receive instruction in a smaller classroom environment. This enables us to divide the grade levels into four classes instead of three for daily math instruction.
  • Enrichment support provides extension of critical thinking skills beyond the level required in the classroom. This service will center around themes of student interest. Length of instruction is based on developmentally appropriate subject matter and age. These flexible groupings are short-term.
  • Occupational therapy is a medically based remediation for children who are missing a necessary skill or skills to be completely successful at school. This therapy supports the child in the school environment and aims to teach or restore those missing skills. Although this service is provided by an outside vendor, it is offered on our campus during the school day as an extra cost to the parent. Please understand your participation in this service is optional, and it is your decision to choose on campus services or outside resources.
  • Speech and language services are provided to help children develop the communication skills necessary to succeed at an age-appropriate level. These services are offered through a private contract to children who demonstrate delays in receptive or expressive language, auditory processing, articulation, voice, fluency, hearing, or phonemic awareness. Although this service is provided by an outside vendor, it is offered on our campus during the school day as an extra cost to the parent. Please understand your participation in this service is optional, and it is your decision to choose on campus services or outside resources. You will be notified if your child is recommended for any of the services listed. Please call or email if you have further questions.
