Our curriculum is aligned with the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventist standards as well as our State of Pennsylvania standards.
At TNTCS, we do many things to help the students ease through this time of transition while growing academically, physically, and spiritually. We are committed to providing your child a quality, holistic education in a safe, Christ-filled environment.
Students begin each day with a time of worship. The spiritual focus of this time includes learning more about the life of Christ, an emphasis on Christian character development through pertinent stories with a moral, and exploration of the Seventh-day Adventist organization and its doctrines. Several times each week the students gather in the church, kneel in a circle, and take turns praying for each other.
Students enjoy Bible based Creation science content materials, especially the variety of Hand-on experiments they do every week.
This class teaches students about the parts of a computer, computer-based vocabulary, and keyboarding skills. They also learn how to use Paint, Power Point, Word and online learning platform Jupiter Ed, IXL.com, Typing Pal, and others.
Over and above the regular art curriculum, fifth and sixth graders study the “Elements of Art” and the “Principles of Design.” They learn to recognize what makes up a work of art and then study authentic works of art at a local art museum. Students create and share projects that demonstrate their knowledge of the Elements and Principles and art. Through the art curriculum, students produce amazing works of art by following the theme and directions of the lessons. Their work is regularly displayed in the hallways of the school.
A new math curriculum has been adopted which are Big Ideas and Go Math. The curriculum consists of discovery and direct instruction that includes intervention strategies to support different areas of need. While students focus on fewer topics, they gain a deeper understanding of the topics by studying them in greater detail. The curriculum includes the use of technology and has on-line capabilities for students.
