Third Grade

Private Elementary School – Third Grade

Our program provides a valuable Third Grade experience for your child and the following benefits:

Academics – We have a comprehensive curriculum, A BEKA, that builds both strong character and academic excellence. As you follow your child’s progress through the year, you will be thrilled to see your child learn the basics in reading, writing, and numbers. We also teach patriotism and the true meaning of holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.
Class Size – Our class size is limited so your child will receive more one-on-one attention.

Extended Care – We offer the convenience of quality care from 6:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m., so that your child remains cared for in a safe, nurturing environment when the academic day is completed.

Computers – Each elementary classroom is equipped with two computers. In addition, the Springfield Academy has a twelve station computer lab to help children develop skills in technology and to enhance their education.

Dedicated Teachers – All of our elementary teachers are certified teachers. They have Master’s or Bachelor’s degrees in Elementary Education or Early Childhood Education.
