Students in grades K-5 through 4th are in a self-contained classroom environment. Students in grades five and six are team taught by two-three teachers in an effort to make the transition from middle school to junior high smoother. 

Our curriculum in the elementary school is specifically designed to prepare students for the critical thinking required in our later grades and incorporates curricula from Christian textbook publishers. We adhere to the minimum required content standards from the Alabama Courses of Study and add additional instructional standards and learning experiences for an enriched educational experience. 

Elementary students at Shoals Christian School receive instruction in the following core subjects:

  • Bible
  • reading comprehension
  • phonological awareness/phonics/spelling
  • English/grammar

In addition to core instruction, students also receive a daily PE class and weekly music, computer, art, library, and Spanish. 

Elementary chapel is held once each week. The school day is 8 a.m. - 2:50 p.m.

"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6
