Our Bible-based, Lutheran curriculum allows us to incorporate our academic learning with religious instruction. This curriculum follows the Bible chronologically throughout the school year and Bible accounts differ slightly for each classroom level.
Each week the Bible lesson will be focused with academic elements so students are learning their letters, numbers, and social skills within the context of the Bible account. There are also supplementary stories that introduce concepts like Baptism, Communion, Heaven, Prayer, and Forgiveness.
We also use the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards when planning our lessons to ensure that all students are exposed to developmentally appropriate activities that will help prepare them for success both in and out of the classroom.
