Grades 1 through 5 make up the elementary division of South Merrimack Christian Academy. Class is in session five days a week from 8am-3pm and aims to prepare students for the secondary level. We use a combination of A Beka and Bob Jones materials, as we find this material best suited to our high academic standards and best reflective of our biblical beliefs. (SMCA's Curriculum Map)
We offer Elementary Art, Music, P.E., Library, and Foreign Language (4th and 5th Grade).
Annual special events include the Spelling Bee,
5th Grade History Fair, 4th Grade State Notebook projects, 2nd Grade Edible Earth projects, the Christmas and Spring programs, and regular field trips.
Utilizing our mobile Apple Macbook Pro's, our teachers integrate computer technology within the framework of their classroom.
Daily Bible classes and lessons offer students the chance to learn the fundamentals of God's Word.
In Elementary Chapel (which meets once a week), we sing praise and worship songs together and hear guest speakers teach a lesson from Scripture.
Field Trips include: Boston Aquarium, Odiorne Point, Capital Center for the Arts, Boston Science and Childrens Museum, Strawberry Banke, Apple Picking, Red Sox tours, Butterfly Place, McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center, NH State Capital, NH Supreme Court, Canobie Lake, hosting a Naturalization Ceremony, and many more.
