Elementary School: Grades K-5
Elementary School Curriculum That Meets Each Student’s Academic Needs
Setting the Foundation for a Lifetime of Learning

Blake Academy Elementary curriculum fosters and encourages critical thinking skills. 

Courses include a variety of learning approaches, from interactive, digital activities to hands-on, that add fun and engagement to students’ learning.

  • Our elementary school curriculum focuses on the four core subject areas: 
  • Math, Science, English Language Arts and History/Social Studies – plus fun electives, like Dance, Spanish, Bible and Art.
  • Students develop strong reading comprehension skills, write original composition pieces, develop critical thinking skills, learn fundamental math concepts, read classic literature, explore a variety of science topics, and learn about the world around them.
  • At Blake, we understand that today’s students learn differently than students many years ago. That’s why we continually review our programs to include the most up-to-date approaches and technologies that appeal to young learners.
  • Blake has integrated e-textbooks, videos, and online resources into our curriculum to provide students with a dynamic, fun, and enriching learning experience.

The elementary school years are a critical time for students to not only learn fundamental concepts and mechanics but to also develop learning skills and approaches that will set the stage for a lifetime of success.

Blake’s engaging Kindergarten–5th Grade courses focus on children’s natural curiosity and encourage them to delve deep into topics and subject areas – not because they have to – but because they are passionate about learning.

Our engaging elementary curriculum will encourage your students to explore, discover, and excel while learning fundamental concepts that lead to academic success for years to come.

Welcome to Blake Academy

Computer science fosters creativity and teaches students critical thinking skills to become proactive learners, so elementary school is the ideal time for students to be introduced to Computer Science.

Our six Computer Science Fundamentals courses are flexibly designed for teachers new to CS who want to offer accessible and equitable introductory CS courses to their students.

As part of your classroom schedule, you will have weekly lab or library time, supporting lessons for math and language arts, or to make creative projects.

Social Studies  is a  study of social relationships and the functioning of society and usually made up of courses in history, government, economics, civics, sociology, geography, and anthropology.

While external cues are used in the earlier grades, emphasis now shifts to the use of internal word cues. Students are required to understand and explain the figurative and metaphorical meaning of words and to use them in context. In addition, standards at this level require students to understand the different meanings of commonly used words which have multiple meanings.

Although direct teaching of word meanings is effective, extensive independent reading is the primary means for increasing vocabulary knowledge.
