Paramount Christian Academy offers a full day first-eighth grade program. Our class size is 1 teacher to 14 students; almost half the size of a public school classroom setting. Our programs start at 8:30 am and end at 3:00 pm. We offer extended care from 5:30 am – 8:30 am and 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm for an additional fee.
Paramount Christian Academy’s Elementary School goals are to help you create an educated self-confident child who feels both love and respect for God, themselves, and others.
PCA has strategically chosen a combination of curriculum programs that will keep the students engaged and learning throughout our full day program. During the school day we will explore the following core subjects: Phonics, Writing, Reading, Math, Science, Music, Art, and Social Studies using the 1st – 5th& grade level Abeka Curriculum. This curriculum program has proven to challenge each student, but is taught using effective and tested methods.
PCA understands the importance of Physical Education; therefore, we have chosen to make this a part of our daily routine, alternating with a music class. This portion of the day gives students a chance to try new physical activities and practice their fine and gross motor skills. PE has been linked to creating higher self-esteem and a better ability to focus. We will work on balance, flexibility, coordination, body, and spacial awareness using curriculum; from Spark PE programs.
PCA is also incorporating the Handwriting Without Tears writing program. This program will emphasize the correct use of lowercase letters in words and sentences.
To increase each child’s Math, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies awareness, along with allowing the students to gain computer skills, we will be using an online program called IXL in the classroom. Each student will have their own log in code and be able to complete lessons and play appropriate educational games at their own pace.
