Second Grade - Full-time

Second grade cements the foundation of phonics and launches a true love of reading. Students start to explore history from a Christian perspective as they dive into quality literature, student-made materials, art, stories and songs to make it all come to life. The language of numeracy grows in 2nd grade as students dive deeper into math concepts.

Bible  (Deep Roots)

We are looking forward to exploring God’s Word through our Bible curriculum. Deep Roots is dedicated to equipping students with a biblical worldview by helping them realize the truth of God’s design for human beings. Studying worldview in conjunction with apologetics, students can grow more confident in Christ. They will be able to care for other people by answering their objections to Christianity and offering them reasons that support the truth.

 What will students study?

  • Jesus in the Temple (attentiveness)
  • John Baptizes Jesus (sincerity)
