The Elementary Program at Hamilton Christian Academy is dedicated to teaching children the value and dignity of being image-bearers of God as well as producing lifelong learners. In this stage of development, children develop a desire to learn and grow spiritually. Through a rich curriculum, high-quality instruction, and collaboration with administrators and faculty, students will be prepared for future academic success.
Curriculum: HCA offers education based on Christian perspectives. We currently use materials from ABeka Book, ACSI/Purposeful Design, Apologia Science, Spalding- the Writing Road to Reading, Saxon Mathematics, and BJU Press. We regularly evaluate our curriculum to see how it is meeting the needs of the students.
Achievement Tests: K-8 students will be administered MAPS NWEA tests 2-3 times per year to evaluate progress as well as to secure normed achievement scores.
Homework: is an important reinforcement of the concepts learned in the classroom. Parents are asked to support the school by encouraging their children to complete each assignment thoroughly and promptly. Each student in grades 1 and up is given a planner/assignment book to be used throughout the year as it is our desire to help the children with their organizational skills and management of large and small tasks
We believe these resources will aid in accomplishing our goal of excellence in academics with a strong Christian foundation.
