CHCA Curriculum List + Enrichment
Preschool (PK3) and Pre-K (PK4)
My Father's World My Father's World's goal is to raise up a generation of children who see the world through God's eyes and live accordingly to that knowledge. Our year-long DISCOVER learning adventures take a thematic approach as your child explores God’s world through faith-building read-alouds, hands-on manipulatives, science projects, math, art, music, and Christian messages woven throughout the curriculum.

Bible (Kindergarten-6th Grade):
Positive Action for Christ"Positive Action believe that the Bible is God’s self-revelation, the Word He gave to reveal His glory, grace, and love. Therefore, we write our studies to magnify His majesty, His works, and His nature. In each passage of the Bible, we look for how God reveals Himself, then how His message can shine through context, culture, language, and application. We challenge students first to stand in awe of God, to know and love Him, for that is the first step of any true change of character." To learn more about this curriculum and the focus for each grade level, visit Bible at CHCA.
BJU Math "Elementary Math ensures success by systematically reviewing previously learned concepts as well as building new skills. Manipulatives are used in all grades by both teacher and student. Using manipulatives promotes interactive learning that engages all students in the learning process."
BJU Heritage Studies "Heritage Studies use a chronological narrative approach to acquaint elementary-level students with historical people, places, and events. Activities—discussion questions, timelines, maps, and online searches—that build on the previous grade are also employed to aid your students' comprehension and retention of the materials. Our elementary heritage studies program develops students’ critical- thinking skills by encouraging them to evaluate sources, cultures, and events from a biblical worldview. Students need to develop a knowledge of our society’s past and understand the values that have shaped our nation’s story in order to make wise decisions about the values they will hold in the future. "
BJU Science (1-5) "Our elementary science curriculum encourages interactive learning. Enriching lessons incorporate demonstrations, activities, and group discussions and introduce science process or inquiry skills through hands-on activities and projects. Each science textbook points to the wisdom of God and His designing hand".
Phonics First (K) "Phonics First® is nationally accredited Orton-Gillingham training programs for teachers. The Orton-Gillingham instructional approach is rooted in years of neurological, psychological and educational research. The Brainspring Orton-Gillingham curricula is doubly accredited by both the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) and the International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC)."
