As an online elementary program, we believe in partnering with supervisors to intentionally prepare students for our rapidly changing world (spiritually, academically, socially, and personally). NSA’s Elementary courses provide students with certified, engaging teachers who will lead them in the new world of online education. Strong academics, acquired computer skills, Biblical integration, and international classmates give a well-rounded education to young students. Students will come away with new friends from around the world.
Students will find the answers to life’s essential questions, “Who am I” and “What is the purpose of life” in addition to acquiring tools to help them live according to their identity in Christ. Throughout the process, students will explore the concept of Worldview and begin building an understanding of how people perceive the world around them.
Language arts courses are designed to facilitate student growth in the areas of reading, reading strategies, fluency, writing, spelling, vocabulary, and grammar. Skills such as language development, word identification, the writing process, vocabulary strategy development, and comprehension will be taught through fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.
Students will build on key math skills involving number sense, computation, measurement, geometry concepts, and data and probability with the move to foundational tools that support algebraic thinking and problem-solving. Emphasis is also placed on standards of mathematical practice to help students become critical thinkers and effective communicators.
Students will use labs, quests, and creative projects to learn about a broad range of scientific disciplines, including earth science, physical science, and life science. These courses focus on critical thinking with guidance while applying concepts that students have learned to real-world situations.
In social studies courses, students will use reading and comprehension, creativity, and critical thinking skills to understand global perspectives in both ancient and early modern western history.
