What’s Unique About Our 2nd Grade Class

In the classroom, instruction occurs centering on the principle that God is the Creator of all that exists, and therefore all knowledge is interrelated and points back to Him. Biblical standards of conduct are applied in all areas of classroom life, acknowledging that Jesus Christ is Lord of all.

Our instructors use the student’s God-given strengths at each stage of growth to help them learn. In the 2nd grade students enjoy memorizing, singing, and rhyming, so a solid foundation is laid in each subject of study at this age. The classroom continually encourages students to develop skills to equip them to be lifetime learners.

Our classroom instructors have high expectations for student learning. Students learn to love the subjects that their instructors teach and cheerfully follow the godly example represented by their instructors. Our small classroom environment allows your student’s instructors to know and serve your student on an individual basis. Your student will know they are loved, encouraged, and uplifted in prayer.

Bible classes are taught by both the classroom teachers and a Bible instructor. Students participate in weekly Chapel with the Jr. Kindergarten through 8th grades. Chapel is led by the Abiding Savior Pastoral staff.

Students participate in Specials’ classes offered twice a week in the areas of PE, Music and Art. Keyboarding and computer skills are taught within the classrooms.

2nd Grade at Abiding Savior Academy provides your child the opportunity to participate in a Christ Centered learning environment. Our curriculum choices for our 2nd Grade students vary by subject.
