In fifth grade at ACA, students will have classes focusing on reading, spelling, English, history, science, math, and Bible. We will be using the BJU Press curriculum for all subjects except Bible, where we use ACSI. We have seen many benefits from the BJU Press curriculum, as it teaches all lessons from a Christian worldview, which gives our students a strong foundation in the Lord to build their knowledge on. Our students participate in enrichment programs including P.E., art, music, Spanish, and computer, where they learn valuable typing skills. We have a yearly class field trip to Camp McDowell, and plan additional trips that give back to our community and build on our science and/or history curriculum. Our goal as the fifth grade team is to build positive character in each student and to teach them the needed skills to succeed as they leave elementary school.
