Christian Elementary School Avon IN

It is the aim of our school to educate and develop the whole child for the glory of God in partnership with parents and the Christian community.

But what does this look like in the formative years of elementary school?

We love our kids! Our teachers strive to demonstrate to our students through their words, actions, and attitudes that our students are loved, valued, and of immeasurable worth.

We love learning! Our teachers endeavor to create a learning environment that devours students’ attention by utilizing a variety of teaching styles, questions that stimulate critical thinking and a deeper understanding, interactive and hands-on learning, personalized instruction that reaches every student, and by modeling how a passionate learner learns and grows.

We love others! Instead of remaining isolated within the walls of our classrooms, our school is committed exploring tangible ways to serve our community.
