In elementary school, students are faced with new challenges, new opportunities and a whole new learning experience. Concepts at this stage are presented according to the Abeka spiral approach, meaning key concepts are presented repeatedly throughout the curriculum, but with deepening layers of complexity, or in different applications.

The Elementary Department uses the renowned American Christian Curriculum – Abeka together with S.T.E.A.M.

About Abeka
The Abeka curriculum is a comprehensive, biblically-based curriculum from Preschool to Grade 12. Using textbooks, teaching aids and a proven spiral learning approach, the curriculum produces great results. Since 1985, the curriculum has produced ProTeach Lesson Videos that feature master teachers leading lessons in a classroom environment. The Abeka Curriculum has been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS) and by the Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (FACCS).
