Using the A Beka phonics based reading program, students will develop lifelong reading skills. Working at their individual reading ability, students continue this step-by-step reading program that combines readers and workbook skills to ensure continued growth.
READING AND WRITING
Reading is taught using the intensive phonics based A Beka program. Students will complete readers that use very simple words and do not press them to read difficult words until they are ready. This allows them to progress according to their individual reading abilities. Students practice writing skills using activities that reinforce the phonics and numbers lessons the students have learned.
Students learn daily lessons on the stories of Genesis and the life of Christ. Workbook pages reinforce the lessons learned.
Children should be 5 years old by September 1 to attend Kindergarten.
The HCS Elementary Music program provides opportunity to reinforce several areas of development.

The Elementary Physical Education program provides the opportunity to reinforce teamwork and lifetime fitness skills. Through activities and team games, students will develop skills regarding movement and fitness.
