What’s Unique About Our 6th Grade Class

Abiding Savior Academy offers the only full-time Classical Christian educational approach in Sioux Falls and surrounding communities. At its core, Classical Christian Education (CCE) trains students to be life-long learners who reason clearly, think critically, and speak eloquently.

Each of our classes are centered on the principle that God is the Creator of all that exists, and therefore all knowledge is interrelated and ultimately points back to Him. Biblical standards of conduct are applied in all areas of classroom life, acknowledging that Jesus Christ is Lord of all. Bible classes are taught by a pastoral Bible instructor.

Our smaller class sizes (relative to other nearby school options) allow for our teachers to work more closely with students individually. This school environment also offers greater interaction with students from different grades, through which students learn in unique ways from each other.

Sixth grade is an exciting time in the Classical Christian model because students are beginning to transition from the grammar stage to the logic stage of learning. They are still naturally adept at memorizing through songs, chants, and jingles, yet their ability to research, reason, and discern truth are beginning to come alive.

Sixth graders also learn Latin. Studying Latin helps not only with a greater understanding of many English words, but also serves as a primer for languages students may learn later on, including Spanish and French.
