All secular textbooks are owned by the school and are provided for the children. A registration fee helps to pay for these learning materials. Bibles and Catechism are usually purchased by the pupil. Prices are kept as low as possible.
Students in grades 5-8 are eligible to be recognized for their academic achievement by being named to one of two honor rolls. The first level of recognition is reserved for those students whose grades, in all subjects, are A- or higher. The second level of recognition is reserved for those students whose grades, in all subjects are B- or higher.
A special chapel service is held for the children of our school nearly each Monday in the church. Parents and members are also invited to attend these services. The purpose of the service is to stimulate children to a desire for proper worship and to afford the children frequent opportunity to worship the Triune God. The children will have the opportunity to present their offerings to Jesus at these services. The worship services are led by the pastors, teachers and special guests who may be available.
Each child is given an achievement test in the spring of the year to determine his progress as well as scholastic strengths or weaknesses. We administer the Stanford Achievement Test.
