At Lincoln Christian Intermediate School, our goal is to provide students with an excellent education while assisting parents in the important work of raising children who love Jesus. We partner with families to train the next generation of Christian leaders and believe that training happens through the Know, Grow, Discover, Go Discipleship Pathway.
Each teacher and staff member at LCS takes relational learning seriously, meaning that the relationships fostered at school are our priority. Academic instruction comes from caring faculty who want each student to see authentic connections between God and the content being taught. This is why Knowing God is the first step to true education. Meeting the real Jesus then includes the personal provision to Grow in Freedom from the pressures, anxieties, and comparisons that often affect students.
Fifth and sixth grades are designed to unite Lincoln Christian School’s mission, vision, and philosophy with biblically sound curriculum immersed with activities that motivate and challenge students, helping them navigate the transitional tween years. We utilize a variety of curricula to maximize the spiritual, intellectual, physical, and social development of each student to help them Discover their Purpose and be ready to Go Make a Difference in the lives of others.
Fifth and Sixth grade Bible courses are taught by students’ homeroom teachers who get to know them well. Bible truth is taught, yet it is consistently personalized to help students see how it relates to their own lives. Bible is taught first thing each morning to help the students focus on God and His Word and to show students the priority of putting God first in their day. The curriculum is designed to present a foundational knowledge of God’s Word and real-life application for students in fifth and sixth grades.
The LCIS math scope and sequence is purposely designed to transition between fifth and sixth grade, moving from the elementary curriculum to the one used in the secondary building. This is so teachers can work closely to eliminate gaps or possible misunderstandings when advancing to the secondary curriculum. Students in both grades use a combination of digital and print text to complete assignments and assessments. Math content at LCIS is carefully aligned to both state and national standards.
The Language Arts curriculum is a unique blend of digital and print content to provide students with lessons focused on reading skills, literature, and writing. Teachers use the Reading/ Writing Workshop model which allows for small group instruction in a “just-right” text. The curriculum also includes grammar, spelling, and vocabulary instruction. Students at the Intermediate School enjoy Accelerated Reader (AR) for self-selected reading.
Lincoln Christian Intermediate School helps students begin to think critically when it comes to science. Teachers use different types of scientific resources to help students learn to ask difficult questions and dig in God’s Word to discover truth about scientific concepts. Both fifth and sixth grade science courses fully integrate a Biblical Worldview and incorporate hands-on learning. All academic science concepts are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards and ACT Aspire Standards. Multiple lessons include a STEM focus, combining Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math components.
The LCS history curriculum focuses on a narrative approach to history, asking thought-provoking questions and making real-life applications, helping students to view the world as God sees it; therefore, each course focuses not only on academic content, but godly wisdom about the past history and current social environment in which they live. Areas of study include an in-depth chronology of American History in fifth grade and an introduction to Ancient History in sixth grade.
