TGC Elementary

TGC Elementary provides the core for the Schola Elementary Program (Grades 4 through 6). Using history as the organizing theme, TGC Elementary covers literature, geography, writing, and public speaking, as well as art and music appreciation, while incorporating Christian worldview studies throughout the curriculum.

This interdisciplinary class is history and language-intensive. Reading real literature and digging into topics in written assignments, projects, and presentations encourages the development of literate, curious, intelligent students who have a wide range of interests and the ability to follow up on them.

TGC Elementary follows the Tapestry of Grace Upper Grammar level timeline in a three-year cycle of history, and students may begin in any year.
