Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the CVCS Elementary School Web Page. Thank you for taking interest in the amazing things God is doing at CVCS. The CVCS Elementary School consists of grades Junior Kindergarten through sixth with programs including a two, three or five day Junior Kindergarten, Home School Co-op , Arts Academy and more.

Children in the elementary school are taught by committed Christian believers. Each teacher models Christ’s love in their classroom and to their students. Spiritual development of the child is our fundamental core value. Our daily Bible instruction and chapels offer our students opportunities to learn about a loving and compassionate God and become Disciples of Christ.

All of our elementary students go through the California Standards based HSP Harcourt Math Curriculum or Envisions Math from Pearson.  All K-5 students are taught piano keyboarding as part of their math instruction by a well-trained faculty member modeling a comprehensive music curriculum developed by neuro-scientists at UCI. This stimulates brain activity through what has become known as the “Mozart Effect.”  Also, our math curriculum is supplemented with IXL Math software in the classroom and the computer lab.  

Spalding Education International’s “Writing Road to Reading” method provides the foundation for our Language Arts curriculum. Proven by research, Spalding is a strong phonics based approach to reading instruction. Spalding meets all the criteria set forth by the National Reading Panel providing a program that is challenging in reading, spelling, comprehension, listening and writing. The Spalding method meets all the California Common Core Standards for Language Arts.   Teachers and administration have attend extensive training to become Spalding Certified Reading Specialists.
Capistrano Valley Christian Schools is a leader in technology education. Students in Kindergarten through Sixth Grade become proficient in various Microsoft Applications including word processing, Excel, Power Point, graphics, desktop publishing, data base application, and Internet. Students also work daily on keyboarding skills and quickly become proficient at typing and the manipulation of computer software and applications. Our program is aligned with all ISTE (International Standards of Technology Education) standards.

CVCS Elementary is proud to introduce iPad technology in all classrooms.  This will allow faculty to easily navigate through curriculum and remedial/enrichment opportunities for their students while being innovative with student collaboration and problem solving.  Primary classrooms are fitted with iPads for student and teacher use and our entire fifth and sixth grade student body have been chosen to use 1 to 1 mini iPads for individual learning along with daily laptop use.  Programming blending the use of tablet and laptop/desktop PC technology will create options for our students to determine the best technology scenario for problem solving.

Our highly qualified and professional faculty all work together to keep up on the latest advances in education while focusing on meeting the individual needs of each student. We are extremely proud to offer one of the most outstanding educational programs in Orange County.
