The CSCS Elementary school consists of grades kindergarten through 5th grade. Each classroom teacher holds a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in education while many also have their master’s degree. Teachers also are required to obtain certification through the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), our accrediting agency. Most of the families whose children attend our elementary school would say that the strength of our program is our loving and caring teachers. The elementary classrooms are part of the K-12 facility which has beautiful gymnasiums, cafeteria (including hot lunch), art rooms, music rooms, band room, libraries, computer rooms, playground and nearby fields. Many of those facilities are dedicated specifically for K-8.
The core subjects in the elementary school are Bible, Reading, Writing, Grammar, Math, Social Studies, and Science. Special classes include art, computer, library, music, band (5th), physical education and Spanish. We also have an Academic Resource Clinic to help students who need extra attention in either reading and/or math.
Extra curricular activities include a Speech Meet, Spelling Bee, participation in the District ACSI Spelling Bee, Science and Art Days sponsored by our PTO, along with Colorado History Week and Spiritual Emphasis Week activities. Our students are also eligible to participate in a variety of sports activities through the local Christian Schools Athletic League.
Our view of Scripture is that the Lord has given children to parents – not schools. Our role becomes one in which we partner with the parent and church in the education of children. It’s a ministry privilege that we believe God has given to us.
