The 5K curriculum is designed to instill a natural curiosity and a love of learning, a sense of responsibility for one's own work, and to develop a passion for reading and writing. Teachers use a combination of whole group, small group and individual instruction in order to meet the needs of all learners.
Students receive daily instruction in reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. In addition students attend physical education, computers, makerspace, special purpose fridays, library, and music classes.
5K students attend chapel daily. Chapel includes daily prayer and worship through songs and finger play. Students participate in weekly bible stories that are led by early childhood teachers and are interactive and developmentally appropriate.
