Biblical Integration in the Academic Arena
The spiritual atmosphere in the classroom is strongly emphasized throughout the entire day. Every day begins with daily devotions – the elementary in their individual classrooms and the junior high and high school in a corporate setting. Classes regularly begin with prayer and/or a short devotion or Bible reading, and teachers are encouraged to engage in prayer as needed. Scripture is the Word of God and is taught as truth. Every element of curriculum is permeated with God’s Word. Chapel is held once a week for all grades and serves two purposes: to worship – giving thanks to God for all that He is and does for us – and to engage in a time of spiritual teaching and development as God’s truths are implanted in each mind and heart.
The academic year at Country Christian School is divided into two semesters each composed of two nine-week quarters. Report cards will be issued at the end of each nine-week grading quarter. Progress reports will be emailed at the four-week mark and six-week mark for all 4th -12th grade students. In addition, K-6th grades will hold conferences with all parents at the end of the 1st quarter and upon teacher or parental request after that. Parents of junior high and high school students may schedule a conference with any teacher or administrator by calling the office.
