Our academics is Christ-centered and above average. As such, our curriculum is child-centered and fosters Christian-based principles and life-long learners. Thus, we utilize a combination of the ABEKA and Creative Curriculum in our infants, toddlers, and preschool classrooms. In our Pre-K classrooms, we use Hi Scope, a learning focused curriculum that enforces academics and social emotional development. In addition to our regular curriculum, Bethesda Christian Academy has the LITTLE GRANT PROGRAM that provides lots of language and literacy activities that focuses on improving literacy skills in young students.
