Established in Christ. Prepared for life.

Curriculum

Philosophy

All curriculum is taught from a biblical world-view, with the goal of developing Christ-likeness in your child. Working in partnership with parents, Dunwoody Christian School is committed to the educational and spiritual growth of every student.

Our methodology is to educate, not indoctrinate, so questioning and exploring ideas are welcome in our classrooms. The notion that “all truth is God’s truth” will always guide our teachers as they prepare and deliver classroom lessons.  

Core Curriculum

We draw from the best curriculum available by subject. Our curriculum adheres to the Georgia Standards of Excellence and the Georgia Performance Standards. We rely upon our spiritually mature, state-certified teachers to ensure that all classroom content is presented from a biblical, Christian perspective.

Listed below are our current curriculum directions for the 2018-2019 school year.

Math: Saxon Math

Science: Purposeful Design Science

Language Arts:

Reading / Spelling / Grammar: Saxon Phonics & Spelling, teacher directed readings.

           Handwriting: Handwriting Without Tears

For most areas of Language Arts, we will move to an Orton-Gillingham approach in our second year.

Social Studies: Georgia Experience (Gallopade), Maps, Globes, Graphs (Steck-Vaughn, 2nd grade)

Bible: Purposeful Design Bible. Bible content and biblical concepts will be integrated into all of our subject areas, including our co-curriculars. Of course, the Bible will be the foundation of our weekly chapel services.

Co-Curriculars

We believe strongly in educating the whole child by embracing a broad range of learning experiences. Spanish, Physical Education, Arts, Music, and Technology will be offered on a weekly basis.
