The curriculum of Trinity Christian School includes academic instruction (reading, math, language arts, spelling, social studies, history, health/science and creative writing), art, physical education, chapel and special events, including field trips. All phases of the curriculum are directed toward the development of the whole individual.
In standard academic classes (Math, History, Science and Language Arts) emphasis is placed on student achievement and mastery of academic fundamentals. Curriculum is carefully chosen by faculty and administration to hold a high academic standard without compromising Christian beliefs.
Students are formally graded each quarter (K-1st uses symbols rather than grades). The first quarter is completed with a formal conference with the parent, at which time the report card is given during the conference. Second and fourth quarters, the report card is sent home with the child. Third quarter report cards will also be sent home with the child unless a special parent/teacher conference has been scheduled. If so, the parent will pick up the 3rd quarter report card at that time.
Midterm Progress Reports are issued approximately midway in the 1st and 2nd quarters of the school year. Consult the school calendar for the exact dates on which they will be sent home. Teachers and parents work together to help the student to improve his/her progress. Third and Fourth Quarter Progress Reports generally go only to parents of students who have demonstrated academic and/or behavioral deficiencies, or by individual parent request.
Bible instruction and application of its principles are an integral part of all instruction in the classroom and on the campus/playground. Along with our regular curriculum and memory program, our Bible curriculum will focus on Christian character traits such as love, honesty, respect and courage. Through the teaching of these Biblical character traits, it is our goal that each child will begin to practice these character qualities in his/her own life. These character qualities will be reinforced in each child’s life throughout the day, not just at a specified Bible class. We at Trinity Christian School desire to give our children more than just Bible knowledge; we want the truth of the Bible to affect their lives in a personal way.
