Go Beyond Expectations; Meet Needs
School truly becomes an extension of home as parents and teachers pray for students, share a Biblical worldview, and remain in lock-step, as they seek to train and equip students for life.
Full day kindergarten: 8:15 am-2:52 pm
Half-day morning kindergarten: 8:15 am-noon
Progressive begins the school year as a morning half-day, but will gradually add full days over the course of the year. This gradual increase of the school day helps prepare students for a full day of first grade. The Progressive Kindergarten schedule is:
November 3: students attend school for one full day each week (Tuesday) along with four half days.
January 5: students attend school for two full days each week (Tuesday and Thursday) along with three half days.
March 1: students attend school for three full days each week (Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday) along with two half days.
