Academic Intentionality

The Bear Creek School is an academically challenging environment where students are encouraged to reach high levels of achievement. We believe that it is important to keep the bar high and nurture students, giving them the support to accomplish extraordinary things. Our teachers use knowledge in current brain research, child development, and excellent instructional methods to ensure that mastery learning takes place in the classroom. Students are challenged to think critically, solve problems, and articulate ideas in order to impact the world around them.

The curriculum is carefully planned at each grade level to ensure that students are gaining all of the skills and knowledge needed to have a deep understanding of each subject area. We develop students who are well-equipped to be the top thinkers and leaders in any field of study they may pursue through higher education and beyond.

However, it is not enough to train a student's mind without devoting instruction to character and spiritual development. Students gain a deep knowledge of Scripture and learn how to apply Biblical principles in their lives. We believe that God's character is revealed not only in His Word, but also in every facet of Creation; therefore, we teach that all knowledge is interrelated and can instruct us about God Himself.

What people would find most surprising is that it is really fun. The kids have fun in the classes.”
