Biblical Perspective: God has revealed Himself to us in nature as a God of orderliness and perfection. Mathematics is a universal expression of God’s creative and sustaining word. We see how God has woven the forces and relationships concerning creation in mathematical terms we understand. Through the study of mathematics, students will learn how to think creatively and analytically.

Our math program follows a traditional route of mathematical study. Two tracks of math are available beginning at the 6th grade level. Students following the regular track of math in 6th grade will master the four arithmetic operations with whole numbers, positive fractions, positive decimals, and positive and negative integers, and they accurately compute and solve problems and one-step linear equations. In 7th grade, these students will complete a formal Pre-Algebra course followed by Algebra 1 in 8th grade. The advanced track begins with Pre-Algebra in 6th grade, followed by Algebra 1 in 7th grade, and Geometry in 8th grade. As an accredited school, Algebra 1 and Geometry credits successfully transfer to our local high schools.


The elementary math program concentrates five basic areas of math.   These areas are addressed at each grade level with appropriately increasing difficulty and meet the state standards of California. Specifically:

  • Number sense
  • Algebra and functions
  • Measurement and geometry
  • Statistics, data analysis, and probability
  • Mathematical reasoning
