Small School. Great Minds.
All North American Division Seventh-Day Adventist Schools utilize the Pathways program as the standard curriculum. The program is thematic, mulit-sensory and allows for differentiated instruction. By using Pathways, our students remain aligned to national standards while allowing the teacher to tailor the program to the unique needs of their students.
Although the program is rigorous, it is designed to be fun and enable students to explore God’s word through experiential learning.
Reading & Writing
Reading is the act of decoding words. Literacy is the ability to decipher, comprehend, analyze and share information in a clear and effective manner. At Fairview Village Adventist School, students will participate in one-one-one guided reading activities as well as whole group discussions using texts and align with our Christian heritage.
After reading and discussion a text, students will be required to share their newly acquired knowledge and insight through written and oral presentations. While all students will be trained to use technology as a communication tool, they will be required to write and pan their presentation on paper first. This will decrease their need to rely on grammar and spell check in the future – effectively maximizing their time and enhancing their us of technology.
Math & Science
The innovative Go Math! program emphasizes the critical areas and depth of mathematical understanding through interactive lessons, research based instructional approaches and best practices from around the world. Students record their strategies, explanations, solutions, practice and test prep form every math problem – at evert grade level.
Science is integrated in each Pathways theme and includes theory, observation, and experimentation. Students are taught to appreciate the power and majesty of God through science.
History & The Arts
The study of history enables students to contextualize and reconcile the present with the past. Students will engage in a dynamic study of nations, geography, economics, customs and politics primarily thourgh first source materials.
The study of history is incomplete without a study of the arts. Students will learn to describe, analyze, interpret, assess and create art. We hope to retain a violin and mixed media art instructor for the upcoming school year.
