The Lower School enrolls students from kindergarten through fourth grade. These are the most formative years in a child’s life and the lower school takes pride in offering a mastery approach to learning. Children advance quickly in a safe, wholesome, joyful and nurturing environment with a friendly approach to structure and discipline.
Lower school students learn to read with phonics, a systematic approach to the English language. Reading comprehension, spelling, grammar and writing are introduced in kindergarten. All lower school students study mathematics, history, science, physical education, art, music and French. Latin begins in third grade.
Curriculum is age appropriate and children build skills in critical thinking, reasoning, research and communication. With strong academic, moral and social values, the Fairfax Christian School creates a foundation that will last a lifetime.
