Welcome to Agape' Academy & Child Development Center


Agape Academy Child Development Center uses the Abeka Curriculum for its pre school section. For early learners,the Abeka Curriculum can be challenging, as the young child begins its ability to learn letters, colors, numbers, shapes, science and most of all words. This curriculum has a spiral approach to skill building. It is bible based and therefore approaches each subject from a Christian perspective. Abeka places emphasis on teaching phonics (reading), mathematics and language development in a structured classroom setting.

For Pre school students, we also incorporate the Project Construct curriculum. It allows children to construct knowledge through hands on activities and interactions with their physical and social environment. This curriculum assists the students in exploring and discovering things on their own.
Our Preschool along with the Abeka curriculum, uses the Creative Curriculum. Creative Curriculum is a play-based curriculum which uses exploration and discovery as a way of learning. It enables children to develop confidence, creativity, and life-long critical thinking skills.

Curriculum/Elementary and Middle School

For our elementary and middle school uses the Harcourt curriculum and other more advanced supplements to achieve an accelerated education. Most Agape students score higher and sometimes even two grades higher than their current grade. Harcourt and other supplements including Abeka help to insure a sound accelerated academic experience. It is not unusual to find 7th and 8th grade students figuring out geometry and advanced algebra problems. We teach strongly, physical sciences, including environmental, earth and life sciences.

Agape has incorporated music, art, woodshop classes, machine shop and family and consumer science.

Extra Curriculum Activities

Extra activities include drama, sign, dance, step, choir, band, basketball and soccer.
