At First Wesleyan, a student is first and foremost loved and cared for as a lifelong learner. The kindergartner encounters a caring learning atmosphere where they are encouraged to create, collaborate, and hone gifts and skills that God has given them. By the end of the year, students can move from learning their letters, sounds, and blends to reading complete sentences thanks to small class sizes. The kindergartner will be prepared for addition and subtraction in the first grade by building on core skills in counting, sorting, and patterns. Our Kindergarten, which follows the Abeka curriculum, has a strong emphasis on the integration of the Bible into all subject areas, including handwriting, phonics, reading, math, social studies, and self-care. Students also participate in Spanish, Art, Computer Technology, Physical Education, and Library classes, in addition to their main academic requirements.
Our elementary school students continue to work at a faster academic pace while taking advantage of an expanded curriculum that combines the Abeka, Bob Jones, Saxon, Summit and Sadlier Oxford curricula in small class settings. A weekly rotation of Spanish, P.E., Technology (library and computer), and Fine Arts (art and music) is also included in the students' enhanced curriculum.
