"Train up a child in the way that he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
Step by Step Christian School has taken years of experience to develop a strong academic program with a consistent methodology, beginning in our infant and toddler program and cultivating our students through the junior high school level. By seizing the natural windows of opportunity that present themselves during the developmental milestones of childhood, we pave the way for students to learn higher order thinking skills. At the same time, we are also familiarizing young students with teaching methods that will expand in a systematic and logical fashion as their academic needs extend to the increasingly complex concepts that are introduced in the later grades. Beginning at the early elementary level, we strive to form responsible study habits in our students. Homework exercises are designed as an opportunity to enhance study skills, and we focus on awareness of the learning process, so that they graduate from Step by Step with the best preparation to move forward through their high school experience and into adulthood.
Our well-rounded program is designed to benefit many different types of students. Step by Step does this by challenging each student and meeting each student at his or her level. Instruction is tailored for the needs of each child so that all students are given what they need for success in the classroom. Both gifted students and students facing challenges with regard to learning are given every opportunity to feel the confidence derived from success in our school setting.
Step by Step Christian School approaches knowledge as a means to Christian service. The best possible academic preparation leads to the best possible thinking, and in turn serves students throughout their lives as they use their knowledge in the service of God, their church, others and themselves.
