K-8th Academic Overview
Gaarde Christian School offers academics that are Christ-centered and developed to meet individual student's needs. In grades kindergarten thru 8th grade, the curriculum promotes strong academics in the fundamentals of reading, language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science as well as the opportunity to participate in music, art, and physical education. All subjects are taught from a Bible-based perspective. Various classroom activities and school events provide avenues for student creativity. We emphasize critical thinking, decision making, and problem solving abilities. At the Middle School level emphasis is placed on leadership skills, effective communication, and critical thinking. Students are being prepared for the next level of learning and attaining skills that enable them to have success as life-long learners.
Gaarde believes small and personal class sizes enhance our high-quality academic program and allow teachers to meet the needs and abilities of each student.

ACSI, Saxon Math, Saxon Phonics & Spelling, BJU Press, Houghton Mifflin, Scholastic, and various other publishers
