Westside Christian Academy prek – 12th grade classical christian school

grammar school

1 – 6th Grade (The Grammar Stages)

Though the word “grammar” is typically used to refer to linguistic structures and rules, we use this term to mean the foundational knowledge of not only language, but also history, theology, art, music, mathematics and science.  

Young children are excited to discover the world around them. At Westside Christian Academy we seek to capture the natural curiosity of children by providing them with tools that will unlock the secrets of knowledge for them. Our curriculum not only helps to ground our novice learners in the fundamentals of subject area content, it also gives them the core of phonetics so that they will be able to read well independently and explore learning for themselves. Our primary grade students learn to read and write through a systematic approach from teachers who understand their unique grade-level needs.

Biblical Worldview Integration is a methodology of presenting material so that children can make connections between specific academics and the reality of a living, holy God.  Each and every day even our youngest students are learning the truths about the character of God.  Through our literature based reading program, students enjoy classic novels which are enhanced by multi-subject integration and a Christian worldview perspective. Advanced curricula in math and science allow wonderful opportunities for Christian worldview discussion. Latin helps students better understand our own language and gives them an advantage in both the literary and scientific realms of their education.  

The Grammar School experience at WCA also includes twice weekly Art class, Music class and Physical Education.  Field trips are planned at each grade level to give students a deeper interaction with our curriculum.  Our students attend weekly chapels, regular morning assemblies and participate in community Adopt-a-Leader programs.
