ACADEMICS | EARLY LEARNING

The Grace Christian Early Learning program  for preschool and pre-kindergarten students teaches a wide variety of skills while always keeping the main purpose of developing lasting Christian character qualities at the forefront of each student’s educational experience.

Bible

Each student will participate in a Bible study and will memorize a weekly Bible verse. We feel this is important to begin at an early age as it is written,

Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.”, Psalm 119:105 (NLT).

Early on Grace students learn the importance of listening to God and obeying Him.

Academics

Early learning academics are comprised of an age-appropriate, Bible-based curriculum that focuses on such things as fine motor skills, social skills, and listening and following instruction.

In addition to core subjects, Early Learning students participate in supervised recess and a Physical Education program that has been designed by an Oregon Licensed Physical Education Instructor.

Early education students are introduced to the Fine Arts by attending music education class, performing in Christmas and Spring musical programs, and creating several classroom art projects.

The purpose of art instruction at Grace Christian School is to encourage the student in developing creativity, design, and love of the fine arts. Regular instruction in art is provided for all of our students. It is our prayer that our art can be an effective outreach to others and display our love for God.
Vocal Music: Begins in preschool and continues through all grade levels. Students are not only taught songs, but how to sing. Christmas and spring programs are presented by our students.
Students have regular instruction in P.E. beginning in pre-kindergarten. Utilizing age-appropriate curriculum, students are instructed on the importance of taking care of their bodies.
Some Spanish terms are introduced during the preschool and pre-kindergarten years, with more instruction added in Kindergarten. Spanish is offered at all levels up to 12 grade AP Spanish.
At Grace Christian School, we feel it is important to expose students to experiences outside the classroom, as often a “real world” classroom environment can spark a desire to learn, which in turn is reinforced through classroom curriculum. We accomplish this by taking students on field trips to places such as:

  • October visit to a pumpkin patch
  • Trip to the farm
  • Visit to a fire station

Thank you for the guiding light you all have been and the moral foundation you instilled in me at a young age...You all are amazing and without wonderful role models and teachers like you the world would be a much darker place. Keep shining for the Lord!

As we passed an ambulance on our way to school this morning I found out that when the kids hear one going by the school they stop class to say a prayer for the person in need. Just one more thing that I LOVE about our school.

(Our daughter) enjoyed her visit very much...the atmosphere is much more laid back and friendly than (her other) high school. The Honors English teacher made a lovely impression on her and so did the cafe lunch...One of the other things that made a big impression on her was the fact that students were openly talking about church and which ones they attend.

Cascade has built who I am today. My life can be divided into pre-Cascade and post-Cascade periods. Cascade is where you can find your true spiritual identity with the Lord.
