Curriculum & Course Sequence
Early Learning Program:
CAK's Early Learning Program Curriculum has been developed around a full five-day program, however, it does accommodate both the three-day (M, W, F) and two-day (Tues., Thurs.) programs as well. Our Early Learning Program utilizes Positive Action Bible Curriculum Exploring God's Love, Bob Jones' "Pathways to Preschool" for the 3-year-old class, Bob Jones' "Footsteps for Fours" for the 4-year-old class, Kindergarten Beginnings for Begindergarten and Bob Jones' handwriting booklet. CAK's Early Learning Program program consists of three rooms: skills room, centers room and craft and art room. Each class rotates within these three rooms throughout the school day. Specials include music, PE, library and computer. Each class will experience one special per day. No more than 12 children are premitted in one classroom on any given day, making for a teacher-student ratio of 12-1.
Kindergarten & Pre-1st:
A systematic curriculum in Bible, reading readiness, language, writing, and math is taught in kindergarten and pre-first. Science and social studies are basic as integrated units of other areas of the curriculum. Music, art, Spanish, library, and physical education are provided weekly for instruction and enjoyment. Students participate in a bi-weekly computer class. All truth is taught as God's truth as He is related to every aspect of the curriculum.
In the Elementary School (Grades 1-5), primary emphasis is placed on the student's attainment of basic skills in language (including phonics/reading skills, spelling and writing) and mathematics. Spiritual development, the student's acceptance of himself/herself as one uniquely created by God, social skills, and development of a strong foundation for later concentrated study in the social and physical sciences also receive major attention. Music, art, and physical education are provided weekly. Spanish is provided weekly in first and second grades, computer is offered once a week on a bi-weekly basis for first grade and weekly for grades 2-5. Library classes are available weekly for all elementary grades.
Parents receive evaluation of their child's academic accomplishment through mid-term reports, report cards
each nine weeks, and a system of grading which is reviewed below.
Oral and written tests are given when teachers determine that tests will assist in the evaluation of the learning process.
To ensure complete understanding and communication, mid-term notices are sent to all parents of children in grades 4-5 containing grades and conduct notations the middle of each quarter.
Contain grades for academic achievement and conduct, together with teacher notation regarding effort and other matters of importance.
