A “Responsibility Management System (RMS)” of earned privileges is used to help students who benefit from a behavior management plan. Our mission statement uses the word “redemptive”. Our goal is to live out this biblical concept through accepting students as they are, allowing them to make mistakes and grow from them, providing the opportunity to begin fresh each day without the reminder of past errors.
Adapted Physical Education classes are designed to advance the development of strength, coordination, balance, flexibility, spatial awareness, directional skills, object control, loco-motor movement, creative movement, and cardiovascular fitness, while promoting sportsmanship and teamwork.
Alphabetic phonics is an intensive remedial method of teaching children who lack strategies to read new words, have difficulty with letter/sound associations, are slow and hesitant when reading aloud, omits, substitutes or misspeaks words, and/or have difficulty with writing including penmanship, written expression and creative writing.
All students receive daily technology instruction in our fully equipped iMac lab. They are taught the basics of several Microsoft Office applications, including MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint, as well as Apple’s equivalent, iWork Suite. All students are given weekly exposure to the internet and are taught the importance of cyberspace safety. Each student has access to an iPad for classroom use and remote learning.
All students have Bible class each day. The curriculum is aligned through all grades, adjusted for the skills and spiritual maturity of each level.
"For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and self-discipline." — 2 Timothy 1:7
