The intermediate department is comprised of Grades 4-6. At the core of our program is a desire to model and inspire in students a deep-rooted love for Jesus so they are motivated to pursue their own growing relationship with Him while letting His character positively affect their relationships with others.
Our programs reflect a commitment to developing the creativity and passion for learning that God has given us. We offer a wide assortment of stimulating programs and activities, ranging from inquiry based projects to core foundational programs that focus on building and strengthening import fundamental skills. Our goal is to affirm and guide students in their strengths and challenge them as they grow to become responsible, independent life-long learners.
Our Mission: Achievement, Citizenship and Lifelong Learning as Authentic Believers and Followers in Christ.
Genius Hour is a program that allows students to explore their own passions and develop creativity in the classroom. Students in Grades 4-6 are given one hour each week to pick a project they are passionate about and develop it to completion over a series of weeks. Upon completion, students present their projects to their peers, sharing their experiences and learning.
The Intermediate Department has developed an integrated Character Education program that fits within a Bible curriculum. Students learn anti-bullying strategies that are rooted in the stories and teachings of the Bible and are provided with both a Biblical perspective and a practical guide to dealing with student relationships.
Connecting with parents is very important at all levels of a child’s school experience. In the Intermediate Department, news, recent events and other important items are communicated through our class blogs. In addition, our department uses an online marking system, which allows our families to see their child’s academic progress throughout the year.
Serving our school and community is a very important aspect of school life for the Intermediate Department. Students have numerous opportunities throughout the year to serve including helping with Missions Trips and celebrating our veterans at our Remembrance Day Tea.
