Academics

Our teachers are caring and experienced, and not only committed to teaching, but more importantly, to the learning process. We use brain-based learning techniques in order to create the most effective instruction and create lessons that are engaging, challenging, and Christ-centered. While focusing on the whole child, we make it a priority for each child to get to know Christ personally, reach their fullest potential academically, and develop a compassionate heart that is willing to serve others.

Curriculum and Text Books

The curriculum at Capo Beach Christian School is unique in that all subjects are taught with a Christian interpretation and approach. The curriculum is chosen to develop the total child mentally, physically, and spiritually. Scriptural principles are stressed at all times to help develop proper attitudes and relationships for all of life’s situations. Guided by the Standards and Curriculum review cycle of the California Department of Education, we regularly review and renew curriculum choices. Our transitional kindergarten and kindergarten programs focus on the development of the whole student: cognitively, spiritually, socially, emotionally, and physically. As they develop, students in grades one and two shift to the process of learning skills acquisition and strategies in the core academic disciplines. In third through fifth grade, students gain mastery of reading and writing, allowing the inclusion of learning how to learn and gaining knowledge of self. Across all grades, students are immersed in diverse classes such as language, technology, hands-on science labs, dance, theatre, visual arts, music, and physical education. CBCS middle school teachers guide students through the transition of self-contained environment of elementary school to the more departmentalized Middle School program. The curriculum is well-rounded, with courses in the five major disciplines: English, mathematics, science, social science, and electives (such as yearbook, culinary arts, and journalism).
