Frequently Asked Questions
What is your curriculum like?
We have a curriculum that is rigorous and academic. It is a mixture of both Christian and secular publishers, but all of it is taught in the light of Christ and our mission as Christian citizens in this world.
How do the students who graduate from your school do in high school?
Our students consistently average at or above the 75th percentile in standardized test scores, with many scoring over the 85th and even 90th percentile. Many of our former students excel in high school, routinely placing in honors or advanced classes.
What is the focus of your school?
The focus of our school is just what our motto states, to train our children in the Word of God, to learn about their Savior Jesus Christ, and to be effective Christian citizens and witnesses to Him in the world he has placed us.
What is the average class size?
Our school has three classrooms, Kindergarten, 1st – 4th grade, and 5th – 8th grade. Our Kindergarten class averages around 4 or 5 students. Our two multi-grade classrooms have averaged between 10 to 15 students.
Can a student be placed by their ability level at your school?
Because of the unique nature of our multi-grade classrooms, we often have the ability to place students where they are at in ability regardless of the grade they are in. This isn’t always the case, but we work with each family to meet the needs of our students in the best way possible.
What types of technology do you utilize?
Our 1st – 8th grade classrooms are equipped with high-speed internet, with desktop and tablet computers (currently an average of one machine per 3 students). Each classroom is also equipped with an interactive whiteboard. Students at Berea regularly make use of this technology for educational enrichment, research, and presentations.
Can your school serve students with special needs?
Currently our faculty does not have specific targeted training in a particular area of special education. However, we have access to the resources of the local school district, and are at times, able to serve the needs of students with special needs.
