Elementary

Just imagine, learning Ohio history while wearing a buck-skin shirt and hand dipping candles as our early settlers had, mining for minerals using chocolate chip cookies, or watching the miracle of life unfold as butterflies emerge from their cocoons. Students at Miami Valley Christian Academy experience the joy of learning in ways that are meaningful and connected to the world around them. Students at Miami Valley Christian Academy excel academically while developing a passion for life-long learning.

In the course of a day, your child will learn from loving and professionally educated Christian teachers. With a focus on the well-rounded child, all students explore and develop an appreciation for art, music, Spanish, PE and computer. Band and after-school activities round the day with creativity and choice. Dipping little fingers into pools of paint, molding clay into works of art using a spinning wheel, cheering at a pep rally, and singing glory to a new-born King on our professionally designed theater only begin to paint the picture of a typical day at what we commonly refer to as God’s school.

Football, volleyball, basketball, scouts, art club or musical productions are all enrichment opportunities awaiting your child. Far beyond the winning, cheering and creativity, your child will be exposed to character-building life-changing experiences through Christian coaches, teachers, volunteers and service opportunities.

At Miami Valley Christian Academy, we partner with Christ-focused families to raise-up Kingdom children; future leaders of America and the world.

Elementary Education & Grading

Student work at MVCA is constantly being evaluated to assure a high level of learning. Student grades (1st grade and above) are posted online in RenWeb and parents are encouraged to regularly review these grades along with completed assignments, quizzes, and tests sent home in the Wednesday packet. MVCA strives to keep parents informed about their child’s progress and experience in the classroom.

After the end of the first and third quarters, Parent – Teacher Conferences are available for all parents wishing to discuss their child’s progress with the teacher. Between conferences, parents are encouraged to email teachers or make an appointment to discuss their child’s progress.

The following grading scales are in use in the MVCA Elementary School:

Kindergarten Grading Scale
A = Area of Concern (lack of progress)
B = Beginning (beginning to develop a skill/often needs teacher support)
D= Developing (satisfactory progress/sometimes needs assistance)
I = Independent (performs skill independently)
U = Usually
S = Sometimes
R = Rarely

Elementary 1st – 6th Grade Grading Scale
A = 90% – 100%
B = 80% – 89.99%
C = 70% – 79.99%
D = 60% – 69.99%
F = 59.99% and below

Student Support Services

At MVCA, we strive to meet the learning needs of all our students. We know that students process information and demonstrate what they know in a variety of ways, with differing speeds and levels of success. We also know that some students have learning needs that require extra assistance. The Student Support Services program seeks to support and assist these students, working in a team approach with their teachers and parents.

Targeting reading and math instructional times, assistance can be provided through small group instruction and in-class support. In addition, those students who struggle with reading have access to one-on-one tutoring and/or small group instruction with our Orton-Gillingham Reading Specialist.

Differentiated Learning

The fact is that we all learn differently. Differentiated Instruction (also known as differentiated learning or, in education, simply, differentiation) is a framework or philosophy for effective teaching that involves providing different students with different avenues to learning (often in the same classroom) in terms of: acquiring content; processing, constructing, or making sense of ideas; and developing teaching materials and assessment measures so that all students within a classroom can learn effectively, regardless of differences in ability.

At MVCA, the teacher proactively plans and carries out varied approaches to content, process, and product in anticipation of, and response to, student differences in readiness, interest, and learning needs.
