OUR ELEMENTARY PROGRAM

The elementary school welcomes the opportunity to partner with parents in helping their children develop the gifts and talents that God has given to each of them.  The goal of the elementary school is to incorporate the best instructional methods and practices to meet the educational, physical, social, and spiritual needs of all students.  Students and faculty work together to create a positive learning environment based on sound educational research supported by Biblical principles.

Our emphasis is for elementary students to become independent thinkers, readers, and writers equipped with the skills to assist them in all subject areas.  Teachers focus on specific objectives, analytical skills, and visual tools necessary for developing optimum comprehension.

TESTIMONIALS

I love the students willingness to learn. Equally so, I love how the teachers and staff encourage academic excellence while molding and lauding Godly character traits and growth.

Cherie Callender

My children have been loved and cared for at PVCA. Their minds have been instructed, their bodies have been given opportunity to grow and flourish, and their souls have been nourished. The teachers consistently go beyond simply cognitive development to address every aspect of my child’s needs-intellectual, relational, physical, and spiritual. Only in a Christian school, like PVCA, is the whole child seen, known, and taught.

Megan Hill

Mr. Beggs has by far been my daughter’s favorite teacher. He supported her exponentially and sent me messages and encouragements during her struggles. When my daughter received all A’s and B’s, he personally messaged me to say how proud he was of her. This encouragement and love for their students has been seen each and every year.
