Kindergarten – Second Grade
Mt. Moriah Christian Academy offers a multicultural, multilevel classroom experience. Our Kindergarten through Second Grade Program provides a safe, friendly environment for children to develop socially, spiritually and academically.

Our curriculum and approach to life is Christ-centered to promote a learning experience which enhances each child’s individual character and personality development.
Our history program provides an introduction to community helpers (police, fire and medical) and the beginnings of American history. It features countries around the world, and simple geography. We have taken field trips to enhance these experiences including the local fire department, community farms, and even overnight trips (with Mom and Dad, too) to Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts. We also have lunches which include trying new foods from the countries we are studying.
We introduce our students to how their body works and the importance of taking care of it. We also focus on discoveries of the animal and plant world, energy, force, and friction and how to enjoy the air around us. We also learn about the stars and planets.
