4th and 5th grades

The Form Three classes are guided by a two-year Global Studies program which addresses what it means to be a Christ-follower in the vast and complex world. Students will understand their God-given mission and their role within the world as disciples of Christ. Through an integral approach of seeing the world, students will consider geography, sociology, history, art, music, literature, and other disciplines in a cohesive whole as they “explore God’s world and discover their place in it.”
