Curriculum

Our Belief

At Rocky Bayou Christian School, we believe that a Christ-centered approach is fundamental to the development and understanding of all academic subjects.  When students learn who they are in Christ and what is expected of them, they can truly develop a Biblical worldview which prepares them to fulfill God’s calling in their lives.  RBCS uses a variety of curriculum tools to ensure that a complete worldview is achieved for each and every student, with differentiated learning in mind.

 

Kindergarten and Elementary

Our Kindergarten and Elementary curriculum is carefully chosen to best reflect our Christian values and academic excellence.  Using a mixture of A Beka, Bob Jones University Press, Saxon Math and Singapore Math, our teachers are able to communicate God’s plans and purposes in every class, every day. All RBCS elementary students will have a daily exposure to Barnell-Loft critical thinking exercises to assist with the crucial development of reading comprehension.  With this method, students will achieve a deeper understanding of what they read and how to apply it; enhancing their learning experience in every subject. Our Bible curriculum incorporates all of the resources listed below, layering the truth of God’s Word with historical evidence, scientific examples, maps, songs, and interactive tools that make Bible time relevant and age appropriate. By 6th grade, all students will have walked through the Bible twice with an emphasis on scripture memory and application. Curriculum choices are reevaluated yearly to ensure Rocky is offering your student the best and most comprehensive education available.
