Elementary School (Grades 1 – 6)
Biblical Standards, Critical Thinking, and Collaboration
At Killian Hill Christian School, each student experiences standards-based instruction in Bible, math, language arts (reading, grammar, writing, spelling), science, and social studies. Critical thinking, discovery and investigation, and collaboration are essential 21st-century competencies integrated throughout our curriculum. Additionally, students participate in weekly chapels and daily Bible instruction. Every subject is taught through the lens of Biblical truth.
Technology is integrated across the curriculum through the use of LCD projectors, iPads for both students and teachers and computer instruction during the STEM specials class. Furthermore, KHCS teachers conduct help classes for elementary school students.
Additional to core classes, students also experience different specials classes including the following:
- Foreign Language
- Art & Drama
- Physical Education
Art and drama classes are scheduled throughout the year as focused opportunities.
Arts and Athletics:
In addition to daily recess and weekly physical education for all elementary students, sixth graders may also participate in middle school sports. All elementary school students participate in general music classes where the curriculum emphasizes music theory, introduction to musical instruments, and development of singing.
Staffed by faculty members and parent/grandparent volunteers, various opportunities to enrich the body, mind, and spirit are available after school in the fall to all elementary school students. Recent club offerings have included Understanding God’s Work in the Gospel, Bible Memory, Competition Math, Family Feud, Running Club, Gardening, Games and Puzzles, and Fun with Food.
Our club offerings for elementary school students are subject to change annually, guided by the interests and requests of our students, as well as the expertise and passion of our dedicated club teachers. This dynamic approach ensures that our students have the chance to explore a diverse range of activities that align with their developing interests and the school’s commitment to holistic education.
The library serves the elementary school with print material and technology to support our strong emphasis on the critical skills involved in reading and research. Media specialist works with classroom faculty to provide instructional enrichment.
The Learning Discoveries program offers student support for non-traditional learners. There is an additional fee for this support program.
Each KHCS teacher is degreed and certified through ACSI. Our teachers are passionate about the personal and educational growth of our students and regularly provide support both during school and through our help classes. Each teacher is dedicated to the Christian faith and committed to integrating Biblical Truth into all aspects of school life. We have specifically designed small teacher-to-student ratios to provide maximum interaction for each student at all levels.
