A Christian school fostering independent learners and creative thinkers
Delicate & Challenging Pace
Our program is designed to help children who did not attend pre-K to become familiar with foundational skills. At the same time, students who went to pre-K will stay stimulated and challenged with differentiated lessons.
We have an intensive phonics-based reading program weaved throughout our learning approach. As children master reading through repetition, we encourage early literacy, which paves the way for a lifelong love of learning.
Fun with Learning
Many of our activities combine fun with learning as kindergarteners tackle core subjects such as Bible, cursive writing, history, traditional math, reading, and science. We have a large playground for students to enjoy, and a gymnasium for indoor active play.
A Positive Atmosphere
Our teachers model kindness by setting a warm, loving atmosphere in the classroom. Teachers also affirm each student for a job well done and encourage them to do their best.
“We prayed about a school for our son,
[as we searched for a place] that he could thrive in. He struggled through kindergarten the first time and it was recommended that he repeat because he was academically behind. We came in for our interview [at Greenville Christian Academy] and we instantly felt [at] home.
In a matter of months, we saw him not only learning and growing, but thriving. We saw him become more confident and started to read even above his grade level. [He later] went [on] to win the citizenship award. This strong foundation [in learning] carried him and continues to carry him. He also found [the] confidence to participate in extracurricular activities and has made lifelong friends.”

“My favorite thing about teaching kindergarten is watching my students smile daily knowing that I can help them grow academically and spiritually. The way I can influence their lives, loving each one of them, loving what I do [allows me] to praise God for the opportunity to do His will daily.
Teaching has impacted my life in a great way. I never had the fulfillment and joy that I have when I am with my students. Watching them grow and learn academically is wonderful, but watching them grow in knowledge and a better understanding of the Lord is so rewarding. The time we spend together my students become my children and the bond we have is a bond that will last a lifetime. My students impact my life daily whether it be from a smile, a note, a hug, or just a look that says ‘I understand now.’”
An enriching curriculum for young learners
Greenville Christian Academy utilizes Abeka, a comprehensive, Bible-based K-12 curriculum with a proven method in the mastery of core subjects. Through this curriculum, your child can bridge topics across different subjects, helping them see how knowledge is applied in daily life.
Literacy is also central to our curriculum, enabling kindergarteners to master and enjoy learning through reading. Our core subjects and specials are built to set a strong foundation for the elementary level and beyond.
Our core subjects include:
We also have a variety of special subjects that allow young children to explore unique interests and passions:
Each child learns at their own pace, which is why we also include a specialized resource program for students with diverse needs.
