The elementary school at Johnstown Christian consists of Kindergarten through grade 5. Most of our elementary classes consist of 18-20 students. Our classrooms are self-contained with one or two teachers. Teachers instruct in: Bible, Science, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Language Arts. The elementary program offers a personal atmosphere where children are safe and valued. Both the academic and spiritual needs of young children are met by providing exceptional learning opportunities in basic academic skills in a Christ-centered program.
To enhance the learning opportunities, the elementary program also provides regular classes in technology, music, art, physical education, Spanish, and library skills. In an effort to meet each child's academic needs, we have a Resource Room and provide additional classroom support through the IU8, Ignite, and classroom aides. Each year, elementary students compete in a local speech meet competition, and 5th graders have the opportunity to participate in a reading competition.
Elementary students are also provided with many occasions during the year to participate in service projects. These are generally group efforts related to scriptural mandates for serving as Jesus would. Regularly scheduled chapels provide further opportunities for spiritual growth.
The Kindergarten program at JCS is a full-day program that meets four days per week, Monday - Thursday.
