Language Arts: Students study various kinds of reading materials including fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and fables.  They study the parts of speech and practice their language skills by writing sentences, paragraphs, essays, and short stories.  Phonics is stressed in the lower grades in our VOWAC program.  Students learn and use their spelling and vocabulary words in writing assignments. Our language arts program includes reading, phonics, vocabulary, grammar, spelling, handwriting, creative writing, and public speaking.

Math: 2nd graders learn about numbers, length, weight, multiplication and division, money, time and touch on geometry.  3rd graders increase their knowledge of numbers, multiplication and division and add fractions, go deeper with geometry and learn about area, perimeter and volume.
