Grammar School Highlight

The first years of schooling are called the “grammar stage.” CBCS Grammar School is comprised of students from Grade 1 to Grade 6. The grammar stage are the years in which the building blocks for all other learning are laid. In the elementary school years the mind is ready to absorb information. Children at this age actually find memorization fun. During this period, students will begin to learn of facts. Students will learn such things as the rules of phonics and spelling, rules of grammar for English writing and speaking, poems, the vocabulary of foreign languages, the stories of history and literature, descriptions of plants and animals and the human body, and the facts of mathematics.

This information makes up the “grammar,” or the basic building blocks of the foundation for children in preparing them to continue to study in the stage of Logic and Rhetoric. Our programs focus in preparing the students academically as well as socially and spiritually. Students learn and comprehend new knowledge, concepts, and applications in their daily life. Basic facts and memorization are emphasized in this stage because they are needed for overall comprehension, discussions, questions, presentations, and projects in order to train them to think critically. Parents and teachers work together to nurture students in their development in study habits, character, and spiritual.
