About the Class
1st & 2nd Grade at Abiding Savior Academy gives your child the opportunity to participate in a Classical Christian Educational learning environment. Because of our adherence to the Classical model of education, our curriculum choices for our 1st & 2nd Grade students may vary by subject but they are always classical in presentation and publisher.
Children use their God-given strengths at each stage of growth to learn. Young children in the 1st and 2nd grades are functioning and learning in the Grammar Stage of the Classical Christian Education model. They enjoy memorizing, singing, and rhyming, so a solid foundation is laid in each subject of study at this age. Students learn to love the subjects that they are taught and love and cheerfully follow the godly example of their instructors.
Bible classes are taught by both the classroom teachers and a Bible instructor. Students participate in weekly Chapel with the Kindergarten through 8th grades. Chapel is led by the Abiding Savior Pastoral staff. Our Pastors also offer a monthly Lyceum to address social issues appropriate for the students’ developmental age through a Biblical World view.
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.
