“Children are not a distraction from more important work. They are the most important work” – C.S. Lewis

We love lower elementary students. They have a unique desire to learn about everything they can. It’s why when you say anything, they inherently follow with a one-word question “Why?” They have a God-given love of learning, and it is our job as parents and educators to continue to foster that love of learning and curiosity.

In Lower Elementary, our classroom is creative, integrative, and hands-on. We focus on teaching students how everything they learn points to the story God is telling.

The Lower Elementary program is two days:

Tuesday (Grades 1-3)

The Artios SmartStart Program is Designed to provide students a developmentally appropriate approach to academics while focusing on each student’s whole heart and unique individuality. Instruction in this multi-age classroom takes place through a combination of large groups, small groups, and individual instruction. Students will focus on Reading and Language Arts, History, Science, and Math.

Thursday (Grades k-3)

The Artios Academy of Arts and History teaches four core courses- history, drama, art, and music. All four courses are integrated with each other by historical time period. We teach these subjects in their entirety, which allows students to have knowledge of facts and have knowledge of the principles and purpose of the subject. All four subjects are taught in a hands-on, creative, and integrative way, all while being taught from a biblical worldview.
