Elementary School (Grades 1-4)
Greater Boston Academy’s Edgewood Elementary program encourages students to seek Christ as their personal Savior, exists to provide a challenging learning environment, promotes high expectations, integrates moral values, expands knowledge through critical thinking, and establishes courage to enable students to act on their beliefs. Our purpose is to respond to the world’s need for students to make “intelligent choices guided by eternal principles.”
Elementary education also lays the foundation for future learning much like the building of a strong house. “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6). Education is a partnership between the parent, the school, and the church.
In all aspects of the elementary school program, emphasis is placed on the life-long development of character founded on biblical principles; high standards for personal scholarship; guidelines for healthful living; and a sense of community, responsibility and service. It is our desire to help students grow spiritually, mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally.
Our school exists to provide a Christ-centered environment where students and staff are challenged to:
Love and serve their Creator Redeemer
Value themselves and others
Take responsibility for their choices
Greater Boston Academy programs promote academic excellence, foster spiritual values, cultivate social skills, and encourage development of physical talents.
