In the Primary program, our teachers guide first through third graders with themed projects and learning centers designed for independent activity, follow-up to teacher lessons, extension of lessons, or enrichment. Using textbooks, multiple kinds of materials, and technology, our children learn choice-making and responsibility as they study religion, English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Special projects help children integrate their learning.

NFA’s Signature Curriculum includes:

  • First Grade- “Fairy Tales with a Twist”: – students read and portray, via green screen, fairy tales of their choice; they then re-write the endings
  • Second Grade- each year a different country is chosen; students research, create presentations using various forms of technology, and perform/display for parents
  • Third Grade- students record their own learning via pictures, voice, and video and upload it into their personal digital learning portfolio
