Laying the Groundwork, Academically, & Spiritually

Your child’s early school years will set the foundation and pace for their future learning and well-being. That’s why you want them to be in a private elementary school environment where they will be recognized, loved, and valued daily for their gifts and strengths, as well as any areas that might need extra attention.

You want them to not only comprehend important concepts but also be able to apply those concepts when needed. A solid elementary school experience will allow them to continue to build on what they’ve learned as they progress through middle and high school.

At The First Academy, we practice what we teach through our Living Curriculum teachers, who infuse learning with joy and creativity, and are role models living out Christian values inside and outside the classroom. Through small class sizes, our dedicated educators are able to really get to know their students individually, including identifying how they learn best. Enrichment classes are available for Lower School students who qualify as academically talented or gifted.

Elementary school is such a fun time for The First Academy students as they continue soaking up information and finding joy in exploring the world around them.

Mastery of Core Subjects

Differentiated instruction. Hands-on learning. Collaborative projects. Field trips. Elementary students master core content — Bible, language arts, math, reading, science, and social studies — through engaging activities.

“I am truly blessed to work in an environment where Jesus is the cornerstone in every decision, every relationship, and every task that is to be carried out. As a teacher and TFA parent, I have peace in knowing that my students, my children, and I are not only safe but growing closer to God every day. “
