A Websterville education begins in the nurturing, environment of the preschool. Here close relationships are built to help young ones make a smooth transition from family life to the life of the larger school community. We are committed to offering a safe, secure, loving atmosphere for each child. A phonics – based pre-literacy program, mathematics, science, Bible time, and balanced play and rest are part of the curriculum. This curriculum is carefully coordinated to build a solid foundation for our kindergarten.
Our program will introduce your child to the exciting world of learning that builds a solid foundation in basic phonetic sounds and rules, manuscript writing, arithmetic, and spelling. Many students will be able to read numerous small books before graduating form Kindergarten. Our Kindergarten program is designed for the 5 year old child. During this time your child will begin to develop the love for learning.
A primary objective of the elementary school is to inspire a love of learning, intellectual growth, and effective study skills. This is accomplished by helping each student master fundamentals of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. The elementary program provides both the environment and instruction, which makes learning an exciting adventure. Daily Bible lessons and weekly chapel focus on Biblical truths relevant to each child’s experiences. Each grade level uses materials and subject matter that are appropriately challenging to the students. Activities are designed to encourage hard work and independent thinking. Through various extra-curricular and supplemental activities, the teachers and students work together to provide a well-rounded program.
“Change” is the word that best describes these school years. The inevitable physical and social changes taking place in these grades provide a special challenge to the parent and teacher. The curriculum is carefully chosen to help the student bring together the concepts learned in elementary school to provide a foundation for high school and beyond. The programs are designed to challenge the students academically, stimulate them spiritually, and involve them physically. The academic workload is tailored for the academically motivated student of average ability. Most students find the workload demanding but readily attainable with reasonable effort.
Websterville’s high school curriculum is designed to prepare students for college and life after college. The curriculum is built upon the foundation of the elementary and junior high school. The high school curriculum includes all courses required for graduation by the State of Vermont, as well as other elective courses. The Bible classes are structured to help the students develop a Christian worldview and an understanding of how Biblical principles apply to situations they face today.
The school has a warm and friendly atmosphere. Websterville’s faculty is committed to developing a supportive community, which promotes and recognizes the individual differences and needs of each student. Parents are encouraged to be actively involved in all areas of the school: Volunteering in the classroom, helping with special events, and promoting and operating athletic programs. Because the school is an extension of the home, we view the educational process as a partnership between both institutions.
