Elementary grades are the foundational blocks for life. Reading, writing, and math skills are developed to prepare students to be a life-long learner.

Some Features of Lafayette Christian School Elementary Grades
  • Christ-focused with prayer, Bible lessons, and chapels
  • Experienced, exceptional, talented teachers
  • Music, art, and PE from specialized teachers
  • 3 recesses per day for grades K-4 and 2 recesses per day for grade 5
  • Close-knit school family
Kindergarten

All of the above plus,

  • Option of 3-day (MWF) or 5-day 
  • Strong academic emphasis; excellent preparation for first grade

For the 2022-2023 school year, we will be offering two kindergarten classes. The three-day and five-day students will be split into two sections. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, each class will be a little smaller as the three-day students aren't in attendance. All classes will follow the same curriculum with the same goal of preparing a child for first grade. The five-day class will have more enrichment activities and reinforcement activities.

If enrollment increases, we will consider opening a third class.
