Give your child the opportunity to learn & grow at CEP
Pre-k 3, Pre-k 4, and Kindergarten students enrolled in our primary school will learn in a play-based curriculum that helps enrich and support their individual needs. Our highly qualified, experienced, and certified teachers are dedicated to helping each child reach their full potential by providing tailored support and guidance that meets the unique learning needs of every student. With low student-to-teacher ratios, our teachers can dedicate quality time to building strong relationships with each child, based on mutual trust, respect, and affection. This close academic relationship enables us to assess each child’s social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth, and work towards achieving the best possible learning outcome for every child. Our primary goal is to equip our students with the skills and knowledge that will set them up for success in kindergarten and beyond.
Calvary Episcopal’s first through fifth-grade program prioritizes a nurturing environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual development of all students. Our curriculum covers a broad range of topics, including language arts, math, science, social studies, health, physical education, music, art, Spanish, and technology that are relevant and meaningful to children.
