ELEMENTARY

KINDERGARTEN - 2ND GRADE


Fayette Christian elementary school offers both traditional and innovative educational opportunities within the context of a biblical worldview. We address the individual needs of our students and maintain an active learning environment. Our desire is to prepare students to be lifelong learners who love learning new concepts about the world and God. Partnering with parents and churches to develop this firm foundation of a Christ-centered worldview is vital. Elementary years are key in developing students’ God-given talents and abilities.


Students in elementary establish a foundation not only of knowledge, but also of study skills and habits that will serve them well throughout their time at Fayette Christian School and beyond. Classroom experiences and extracurricular activities build up well-rounded students who are prepared to serve Jesus through their giftings.


Our elementary program provides a strong foundation in the disciplines of Bible, math, reading, writing, grammar, social studies and science. Students also participate in weekly electives such as Art, Spanish, Music, Library, PE and Technology.
