Elementary Academics

Our classes consist of Kindergarten through Fifth Grade and we are all about discoverning God’s world and learning through Bible, Phonics and Grammar, Math, Science, History, Foreign Language, Art, Music, Physical Education, and Technology.   

We participate annually in the ACSI Spelling Bee and Math Olympics along with the Piano Festival.  The top four students in each classroom in spelling are selected to compete at the district level with hopes of moving to the regional level.  Our math students are selected for their academic skills in reasoning and computation and also compete on the district level with other ACSI schools.  

All elementary students at Gorman take a standardized test in the spring of the year. In recent years GCA has ranked in the 83% of national norms in the areas of Math, Reading, and Language.  We are very proud of our students and their high level of performance.

Our elementary students also have the opportunity to try-out for parts in our annual musicals at Gorman. Many students enjoy creating beautiful art pieces that are displayed in the NC State Fair each year.  Our fifth graders have the opportunity to compete with the middle school students in athletics such as volleyball, basketball, and soccer.

Come and join us in elementary school and discover a world of God’s wonder and excitement in each classroom!
