PRESCHOOL PROGRAM

The preschool program at Kansas City Christian provides a safe and effective learning environment for students ages 3-5. Our program is designed to prepare students for their Kindergarten year, focusing on early phonemic awareness, number sense, and overall classroom readiness. We also emphasize social and emotional development through facilitated play and center learning. Preschool students will organically be incorporated into the overall school community through participation in activities such as chapels, music programs, and Grandparent’s Day.

ELEMENTARY PROGRAM

The elementary program focuses on essential building blocks in reading, writing, and mathematics, equipping students with the confidence, content, and skills needed for future learning. This foundation is established through emphases on phonics, reading comprehension, handwriting, composition, number sense, and math fact fluency. At the same time we foster students’ natural curiosity and problem solving instincts, as they learn to think critically about God’s created world.

In addition to the core courses of math, science, language arts, social studies, reading, and Bible, students will also take the specials listed below.

MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAM

Middle school marks a transition for students as they are challenged to take foundations from elementary and begin to apply thinking in more abstract ways. Our middle school program is designed to foster growth through project based learning opportunities, scientific labs and demonstrations, class discussions, literature analysis, essay writing, and algebraic thinking. An emphasis is placed on students moving into independence as they learn to organize their learning, seek help from teachers, and develop study skills and habits that will carry into high school.

HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM

KCC’s High School curriculum is distinctly college preparatory and includes dual-credit, honors, and Advanced Placement courses (AP) in all core subject areas. Over 95% of our seniors go on to pursue four-year college degrees. The goal of our high school program is not only to make sure students are college ready, but equip students with the critical thinking and reasoning skills to encounter the world outside of KCC, as they pursue their calling and vocation for Christ.
