About the Class
We are excited to offer Junior Kindergarten to those children who have already had a year or two of preschool, but are not yet going to Kindergarten and will be 5 years of age by December 1st. Providing 5 half-day classes will prove beneficial to strengthening and maturing your child physically, emotionally and socially. This program also provides the beginning academic instruction in the areas of reading, math, handwriting, social studies, science and Bible that will lead to greater successes in full day Kindergarten the following year.
Your child will be involved in Bible memory work, art activities, social studies, math and science skills and continuance of pre-reading skills. The Academy has adopted Saxon Math for the Junior Kindergarten and Handwriting Without Tears for fine motor and prewriting skills. All preschool classes meet together for Chapel weekly. A new Bible story and Bible truth are introduced weekly using the Heartshaper Bible curriculum.
School Welcome Packets
Informational packets will be mailed during the second full week of August. Included in this packet you will find Welcome letters from the Principal and your child’s Junior Kindergarten teacher. You will also receive an updated school calendar, a class supply list, and Open House Information.
