Kindergarten

At Faith Christian School, we believe that the primary objective of education is the communication of truth. In order for any education to be effective and valid, it must base its curriculum and its programs on the truth of God’s Word and God’s world.

Our Kindergarten Program provides your child with basic learning principles needed for a solid foundation. We utilize A Beka curriculum, Saxon Math, Handwriting Without Tears, and a variety of supplemental books and materials along with manipulative toys and games to enrich your child’s learning experience. Kindergarten students are included in the annual Terra Nova Achievement Testing.
