Learning Together At PRCA South

List of 2 items.

  • Grades K-1 Curriculum

    PRCA South aspires to provide a well-rounded, dual language education. Our curriculum is designed to prepare children to be lifelong, independent learners, wise and creative problem solvers, and truth seekers who strive to pursue God in every area of life. Students will begin at a 90/10 Spanish/English model and transition to a 50/50 model in 5th grade, which will continue through 12th grade. All students will read, write and speak in both languages.

  • Grades K-1 Distinctives

    Copy Books

    K-1 students produce copybooks that provide ongoing practice for handwriting, spelling, grammar, etc. These copybooks are kept specifically for copying noteworthy poems, prose, quotes, historical facts, and information that touches on the theme being studied by the class.  

    Living Books

    Living books are the opposite of dull, dry textbooks. They are books that are excellently written, timeless, wide-ranging, and interest-holding to children. People, places, and events come alive as one reads a living book. The story and the noble themes presented in the book touch one’s mind, will, and emotions and are used along with the Scriptures by the teacher to stimulate imagination and obedience to the truth. PRCA advocates avoiding “twaddle,” or dumbed-down literature. We choose, rather, to provide a feast for children’s minds with the best literary works available.

    Creation Journals

    Creation journals are artist sketchbooks containing pictures the children have personally drawn of plants, wildlife, or any other natural objects found in their natural setting. These journals can also include creation-related poetry, prose, detailed descriptions, weather notes, Latin names, etc. In addition, we believe in the benefits of children taking walks in God's creation, perhaps one per week, during which they may experience and observe the natural environment firsthand. These excursions are nature “walks,” not nature “talks.” These activities generate the right attitude of mind for scientific observations and inferences, and foster a sense of awe and wonder for all things created.

    Picture & Composer Studies

    The Grammar School structures its program to bring the child into direct contact with works of art and music of enduring quality. Students spend approximately 15 minutes per week studying a work of art by a great artist. The child looks at the work of art intently for a short period and is encouraged to look for every detail. The picture is taken away, and the student recalls what was observed in the picture. A similar methodology is undertaken as the school studies significant musicians and their works. Through exposure to selected works of art and music, students develop an understanding of things that are worthy and timeless, and they build a mental inventory of many great works through the ages.

    Physical Education and Mariachi León

    The South Campus will offer music classes at various levels, from beginner to advanced, under its Mariachi program and will include a variety of instruments - strings, brass, and choral. They also participate in P.E.

    Art

    In addition to picture studies, students participate in formal art class once a week. To begin, the focus is on drawing and elements of art such as visual components of color, form, line, shape, space, texture, and value. Later, students learn about, discuss, and implement principles of design in their artwork and throughout the year are exposed to a wide variety of media and methods. There is also an emphasis on connecting student art to classroom subjects such as history, math, and Bible.

    Recitations

    Taking advantage of the predilection of young children for mimicry and repetition, we provide the opportunity for our elementary students to commit to memory passages and poems of lasting value. 

The mission of Pusch Ridge Christian Academy is to teach our students to become like Christ through a classical, Christian education within a covenantal community.
