Students at Allendale Christian School will receive a well-rounded education, which includes much more than core classes. Students in grades Young Fives through 8th will also participate in what are referred to as 'Specials Classes.' These classes include Art, Library, Music options, PE, Spanish, and Technology. Below are more descriptions of what is offered for ACS students:
K-4th grade: Art, Library, Music, PE, Spanish, and Technology
5th grade: Art, Band, Library, Music, PE, Spanish, and Technology
6th grade: Art, Band, Choir, PE, and Spanish
7th-8th grade: Art, Band & Choir (choice of one or both), PE, Spanish, and Specials choice*
In 7th and 8th grade, students have one 'specials choice' period where they are able to select from options that include classes include Art (clay, painting, etc.), Music (ukulele, film music, etc.) and PE (competitive sports, individuals sports, etc.). This allows students to take an extra class in an area of interest to them.
7th and 8th grade students will also have one period during one trimester where they will participate in Genius Hour, which allows students to study a topic of passion to them, or a 'passion project.' This opportunity is engaging and encourages creativity from the students as they research and create a presentation on a specific topic, under the guidance of the Technology teacher.
