Elementary


Providing a quality education in a caring Christian environment.

Welcome to Chino Valley Christian Schools!

Chino Valley Christian Schools are committed to developmentally-appropriate, rigorous learning in a small class setting.  Our strong educational process focuses on Christ and uses the Multiple Intelligence approach that every child is wonderfully created with a plan for a hope and a future.  The entire teaching staff at CVCS is recognized by our dual accreditation team of Association Christian Schools International and Western Association of Schools and Colleges – that is quality!

 

Our program adheres to state standards while taking a holistic Christ-centered approach fostering academic, social, and spiritual growth of our students.  The curriculum offered at CVCS has a balanced approach to each subject area using established curriculums such as Abeka and ACSI which challenge our students to excellence. Students are afforded the opportunity to acquire a core body of knowledge and skills in mathematics, science, literacy/language development, literature, and the social sciences. This is done through a hands-on, discovery learning approach. Above all, students learn that God is the Author of all Truth as they learn their place in His world.  Bible is taught daily as a separate subject, but is also integrated into all aspects of curriculum and campus life.  Reading is taught through a phonics/comprehension approach that is so successful most CVCS Kindergarten students demonstrate reading capabilities before graduation.

Integrated across the curriculum, particular significance is placed on creative writing, critical thinking, and shared inquiry. Math is taught by both memorization of facts and the use of manipulatives. Character development is accentuated through daily Bible classes, a weekly chapel program, and a school-wide honor code.

While some schools have had to make tough decisions to discontinue co-curricular activities, Chino Valley Christian Schools have an exceptional Fine Arts Department that provides opportunities for students to participate in piano, string instruments, choir and annual elementary theatre productions.  CVCS has expanded its program to provide a studio to explore the world of art.  Also, the music department offers an award winning Honor Choir for student participation.  Library, computer, and physical education are offered weekly to complete the enriched level of instructional development provided at the elementary level.

Building foundations to last a life time…

Multiple Intelligence

We teach using the Multiple Intelligence Approach to learning. This approach assists us in differentiating instruction for each child because we know that God created each and everyone of us differently. That means that we are all intelligent in different ways and we all learn differently. At CVCS we understand that and ensure that each child will reach their fullest potential and beyond.

So what is your child’s intelligence:

  • Linguistic intelligence (“word smart”)
  • Logical-mathematical intelligence (“number/reasoning smart”)
  • Spatial intelligence (“picture smart”)
  • Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence (“body smart”)
  • Musical intelligence (“music smart”)
  • Interpersonal intelligence (“people smart”)
  • Intrapersonal intelligence (“self smart”)
  • Naturalist intelligence (“nature smart”)

 

Specialized Curriculum

Here at CVCS we offer specialized classes weekly. These classes encourage your child’s biblical, creative and athletic talents. They also help students become well rounded individuals with Christ in the center.
