The Elementary School at CuttingEdge Learning Academy offers a nurturing, loving environment where children are encouraged to explore, create and elaborate. Our teachers are dedicated to our mission of forming great students, Christian leaders, ambassadors of Christ. This mission is achieved through our educational philosophy of Fundamental Holistic Formation where personalized attention to each child helps them reach their greatest intellectual potential in the areas of intellect, character development, spiritual life and service to others.
Starting in Pre-Kindergarten and continuing through fifth grade, learning is fostered in a caring environment where students become engaged learners who take risks, ask questions, think critically and are able to communicate their knowledge to others.
Our developmentally appropriate curriculum includes, religion, language arts (reading, spelling and phonics) math, science, social studies, and an introduction to Spanish, as well as regular instruction in choral music, art, computer, health and physical education. Our Personal Laptop Program also help to enhance and foster in our children a love of learning.
Our Elementary School students participate in our highly successful online Supplementary Curriculum which covers reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and tons of electives. The Supplementary Curriculum gives reluctant and already successful students alike the skills needed to not only enhance their grades but to improve their academic success across the curriculum and well into middle school. With the Supplemental Curriculum, every student is an independent learner, reader, writer, and researcher.
Spiritual and character formations are essential part of CuttingEdge Learning Academy Education. Teachers use Biblical principles and accountability based discipline techniques to help students learn to make responsible and internally motivated decisions thus building strong spirituality and character. Our students are taught to internalize and practice all the fundamental virtues (the building blocks of their spirituality and character) so that they are able to freely choose what is right and just. Through a caring, nurturing and accepting environment, the most vital mission of the Elementary School is to instill the values of respect for the dignity of each person as a child of God.
The CuttingEdge Learning Academy Elementary School Enrichment Program addresses the needs of every child who require additional challenge beyond the regular grade level instruction. The program is integrated within the normal classroom settings and instructional periods. The program includes critical reading and creative thinking and writing.
