Your child’s elementary school years are a critical time in their overall development, which means it is extremely important to choose the right school for their needs. Our team at Renaissance Classical Christian Academy has extensive experience in working with this age group, and we are here to provide a few tips on how to choose the right elementary school for your child.

  • Look at the Student-Teacher Ratio- One of the things most strongly associated with students’ academic success is individual attention from their instructors, and the best way to make sure your child receives this one-on-one attention is to choose a school with a low ratio of students to teachers. The fewer students in a class, the more time the teacher will have to devote to each student’s individual needs.
  • Look at the Curriculum- Another thing to consider when choosing an elementary school for your child is the curriculum, or subject material that they will be learning. In our experience, many Christian parents have concerns about the content of public-school curricula or the education approach used in public school classrooms. Our team uses a curriculum that covers all subjects in the light of God’s truth and emphasizes His role in all knowledge.
  • Look at the Values- Your child’s early years are a key time in the formation of their character, so it’s important to choose a school that will instill them with the right moral values. If you want to make sure the Christian values you teach at home are reinforced in the classroom, we encourage you to give us a call to learn more about how to enroll.
