Elementary School

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.

Welcome to High Point Academy's Elementary Program!
We are looking forward to the 2022-2023 school year and having your student as a part of our family this year. Some exciting new additions are coming to our elementary students this year. The first is Project Lead the Way (PLTW) for all students! PLTW is a nationally known STEM program that introduces students to the fields of computer science, robotics and engineering, and biomedical sciences. Previously, only our 4th and 5th-grade students could participate in this program, but we have expanded our staffing to allow all 5k through 5th-grade students to complete three PLTW units each year. These units will not only introduce students to the engineering process but also show them how what they have learned in math and science can be applied in real-world situations.  

Our teachers are also working diligently to increase the time they spend instructing small groups each day. We believe small group instruction is key to growing students as quickly as possible. Our goal is to not only close learning gaps but to push students to their full potential so that they are ready for success in secondary school and beyond.

Thank you again for choosing High Point Academy! We look forward to partnering with you to make this a successful year for your family.
