The curriculum of Akron First Academy and Preschool sequentially and thematically presents learning activities with a foundation of Biblical principles and values. Opportunities are made available for age appropriate, hands-on experiences in:

  • Language Arts
  • Math Readiness
  • Nature Study
  • Geography
  • Music
  • Art
  • Bible
  • Construction
  • Cooking
  • Dramatic play
  • Physical Education

Our classes offer instruction without pressure based on the child's age and ability. The curriculum becomes more advanced as the age of the child increases. For example, in addition to seasonal and unit topics, twos are introduced to colors and shapes. Threes review colors and shapes, meet the numbers 1 through 10 and beginning sounds. Fours progress to the number 12 and focus on a letter a week, with its upper and lower case formation. The Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, First and Second grade classes further launch children into phonics, reading, handwriting and mathematical concepts. Instruction in music and Spanish is offered in a separate class each week (except for two's and three's which have music in their classrooms). We use the BJU press curriculum, if you are interested in researching it.

Class-specific curriculum overviews including schedules are available on request. Parents are invited, by appointment, to observe potential classes for a brief period of time. Inquiries should be directed to the preschool office at (330) 836-1436.
