Curriculum Summaries

Elementary School Curriculum

Myrtle Grove Christian School’s curriculum is designed to support the mission to “educate students by exposing them to biblical principles as a framework for all that is taught.” Our curriculum reflects high expectations for both academic and spiritual formation, along with a strong foundation of national and state standards. Teachers prepare lessons that encourage collaboration and opportunities to apply, transfer, and extend what they have learned. Our students are given experiential learning opportunities not only in the areas of math and science, but also involving their spiritual development. Our holistic program has a legacy of providing our students with a strong and secure foundation that enables them to meet the contemporary demands that await them in high school.

In building on our instructional legacy of providing a comprehensive foundation of learning, our school intentionally delivers instruction through the application and blending of best practices found within the Charlotte Mason, Experiential and Classical educational philosophies; with all selected best practices applied within the framework of a Christian worldview. 

MGCS Elementary School teachers are trained to integrate Biblical Principles across the curriculum. MGCS is structured to provide an engaging learning environment that fosters academic, spiritual, and social development. Using a mixture of Christian and secular materials the teachers plan lessons that challenge the students at their developmental level, making lessons meaningful and challenging. MGCS and their certified teachers are guided by a philosophy that blends methods and practices from Charlotte Mason, Classical Education, and Experiential Learning. This approach offers our students unique, meaningful learning experiences where they can apply the concepts and skills they have learned. Enrichment classes, and field trips provide additional opportunities for exploration and learning. Grade level mission projects allow students authentic opportunities to serve their community and grow in their faith and knowledge of Christ Jesus. As students progress through the MGCS curriculum they develop skills and master concepts that provide a foundation for a successful middle school experience

As students transition to middle school, the foundation established in primary grades assures that students are prepared for the challenges that await them. Challenging core courses provide an environment for students to collaborate, reason, apply skills and concepts while learning in engaging and relevant settings. For example, using onsite resources like our Outdoor Learning Environment (OLE) provide hands-on opportunities to apply the concepts learned in the classroom. Students are also given opportunities to individualize, extend, and enrich their understanding through the wide variety of electives. A few examples of electives include Watercraft Building Projects, ROV (Remote Operated Vehicle), Science Olympiad, Drama, or Praise Band. In addition, Upper School students develop spiritual and leadership skills through leading multi-grade level community groups. Students put their faith into action as they develop service projects that benefit local businesses and missions. These groups also foster a school-wide community with a unified focus of serving Christ in our world. As the students progress through the middle school, they develop their academic, spiritual, and social skills that prepare them for a successful high school experience.
