Charis National Academy Elementary is in session from 7:30 am to 2:30 pm Monday through Friday. Our classrooms have a student-to-adult ratio of 8:1. With this exceptional ratio, students receive individual attention while having the advantage of group interactions. Grades 1-3 math and science are taught fully in English. This gives a strong academic English foundation to our students at a formational age. In grades 4-6 our students continue to advance in English, and Bahasa is also reintroduced. Charis classrooms are positive, fun and enjoyable. Students are encouraged to ask questions. They have discussions, share ideas, and work together to create presentations that help develop their self-confidence, leadership and critical thinking skills.
Teachers work with our students to make sure they understand class materials and develop new skills. Regular homework is designed to help students build learning habits, responsibility and time-management. The level of difficulty corresponds to the age of the students.
In addition to our more traditional academic program, Charis SD students also study art, music, physical education, learn computer software in the SD computer lab.
