Christian Elementary School – 1st-5th grade

The elementary years of private Christian education are an exciting time for families! This is also the perfect time to think outside of the box and learn to take chances! Christian Cottage Prep is Biblical in structure and believes that God has created children with GREAT MINDS THAT DO NOT ALL THINK ALIKE. Isn’t it great that all children learn differently and at different time intervals? God has created His children to learn and grow strong in His word. We love to see the untapped potential in a child and then teach them with engaging lessons that are taught by our expert staff who are cohorts with parents.

Each child that enters into Christian Cottage Prep is tested for their personalized education. This is not a pass or fail test.  It is not uncommon for children to be at different levels in academic classes. If children are behind on academics, a plan is formed on how to achieve the goal.  It is not uncommon for students to have a mix of small class instruction along with a regular private session to work on any void in education levels.  Phonics is given for as long as it is needed.  Many students arriving from the public system have low phonetic awareness.  Phonics is essential to become a fluid reader.  The level of phonics given is determined through testing.  The same holds true if a young child is already phonetically fluent there is not a need to continue. Common sense is always a part of our planning process.  Again, nothing kills the joy of learning quicker than a bored child in the classroom.  Take a risk and learn something new today.  



















Dedicated attention focuses on strengthening Christian education foundations to prepare for middle school:

*Math includes operations, conversion measuring, time laps, finding unknowns, basic formulations, mastering fractions, decimals, percent’s in adding, subtracting, multiplication, and division.  Math is sequential; if a student is behind their foundation is strengthened at the same time as going forward, continued note-taking to enhance growth potential, and strategy solving methods
