Elementary School

High Point Academy's elementary program welcomes kindergarten through fifth grade. Our teachers implement South Carolina Standards with clear expectations for each student and grade level. In addition, we use data for every student to target their strengths and weaknesses and help them be more successful. 
 
We utilize Great Mind's Eureka curriculum for mathematics and follow a Balanced Literacy approach for ELA instruction. MAP testing measures a student's progress or growth in school, providing detailed, actionable data about where each child is on his or her unique learning path. Teachers take this information and classroom data and create small groups with lessons tailored to meet students' needs. By working with students in small groups, we can meet the diverse needs of students more efficiently. Students also take the SC PASS and SC READY state standardized tests in the third through fifth grades. These tests help to track the progress of each child, as well as measure teacher performance.
 
We are proud of our Fine Arts program and Performing Arts Center at HPA. Academic Art classes in music, piano, physical education, dance, art, library, and STEAM Lab are built into students' daily schedules. We want them to experience a variety of arts so that when they enter middle school, they can select courses that best suit their interests.

Grey Lancaster, Elementary Principal

Welcome to High Point Academy's Elementary Program!


We are excited to have you and your family for the 2023-2024 school year. This year we celebrate ten years as a school and look forward to having you with us as we celebrate. Over the past decade, we have worked to build a school that focuses on academic success and STEAM learning. In the elementary program, that takes on the form of small group instruction that is guided by student data, Project Lead the Way STEM class, and our wide array of Academic Arts. We are excited to build on the foundation we have started and continue to grow as a school so that we can better prepare your child for what comes next in their academic career. 


Your family's experience at High Point Academy is important to us. Your child's teacher, our assistant principal, Ms. Buster, and I are always available to answer questions and give support so that your child can learn and grow. Thank you for choosing High Point Academy. 


We look forward to another great year!


Sincerely,


Grey Lancaster

Elementary Principal
