1st-2nd Grades

Western Christian Elementary offers an accredited homeschool program in all 50 states!

Western Christian’s 1st and 2nd grade students have five core subjects that include Math, Language Arts, History/Geography, Science, and Bible. Penmanship is optional and has an additional cost. Curriculum samples are available further below. Tuition for 1st or 2nd grade includes curriculum for five subjects, course counselor, support, teacher scoring of tests, and communication. Western Christian handles all record keeping and reporting, plus provides semester report cards. Western Christian’s annual in-home achievement testing is optional for 1st and 2nd grade, but requires a nominal testing fee. It is included in 3rd-11th grade tuition.

Western Christian uses a booklet structure for 1st and 2nd grades. A booklet in each subject will take an average of three weeks to complete. Each booklet combines reading pages, exercises, occasional projects, review, and a test. Each booklet also has a systematic review of previous booklets for reinforcement. New concepts and skills are also integrated across other subjects for reinforcement. A 1st or 2nd grade student will complete approximately 50 booklets during a school year. The curriculum prepares students for any of our five program options that begin at 3rd grade. Our award winning curriculum presents a Christian worldview.

WCE is accredited by NAPS!

Western Christian uses an individualized approach. Students learn at different rates of speed depending on the subject or concept. Students are guided through the lessons at their own pace, giving them the chance to master concepts at their ability before moving on to more challenging lessons. This allows students more time when needed, but also allows them to move quickly when they have mastered a concept.

Western Christian requires a minimum of a two semester (annual) commitment to protect the school’s reputation for academic progress. Semester, quarterly, and monthly payment options are a provided convenience for the parents’ commitment of two semesters.
