Our private elementary school program is equally renowned for its top-tier academics and hands-on, whole-child approach. We engage young students in meaningful learning experiences that promote critical-thinking, creativity, and social development.
Building a Solid Foundation
In grades 1-4, students follow a progressive program across all core subjects; lessons build in complexity as they gain knowledge and skill. A focus on experiential learning (group projects, discussions, labs, etc.) helps build emotional and social competencies, too.
Small Class Synergy
Small class sizes help our teachers nurture each student’s progress toward academic, social, and personal goals. They create a safe space for children to ask questions, share ideas, and feel like they belong.
We pride ourselves on maximizing engagement in the classroom. Through various interactive activities and projects, students think critically, make observations, and share creative solutions to real-world problems.
As students conquer core academic subjects, we also introduce exciting enrichments and extracurriculars to help students practice self-expression, creative thinking, and develop unique interests and talents.
Students dive into reading and continue to hone their writing and speaking skills. Lessons explore:
- Letter Patterns & Spelling
- Reading Comprehension / Discussion
- Syllabication & Word Parts
- Composing Sentences
- Singular & Plural Nouns

- Mon – Thurs hours: 8:45am – 3pm
- Wednesday hours: 8:45am – 2pm (early dismissal)
- Options for Extended Care
At Action Day, learning goes beyond academics. Our enrichment programs are designed to help students develop unique interests and talents—without ever leaving campus. Several options are available to elementary students:
