Philadelphia Montgomery Christian Academy, Erdenheim:
Philadelphia Montgomery Christian Academy is committed to upholding Christian values in an educational environment that encourages student development from our school in Erdenheim in the Springfield Township in Montgomery County, just north of Philadelphia. What sets Phil-Mont apart from other college prep, academically-rigorous schools is the fact that, while we too are committed to excellent scholarship, we uphold the Bible as the living core of the academy’s program. This means that every subject of the curriculum, from the Pre-K child to the high school student, is taught from a distinctly Christian perspective and in relation to the Word of God. It also requires us to seek excellence in every area of instruction, whether on the athletic field, on the stage or in the chemistry lab. Contact us today and ensure your child receives a true Christian education.
The program is designed to cultivate a sense of wonder at God’s design of the world as well as the ability to think with discernment and make biblical choices. Students are pointed to God’s sovereignty over His creation even in simple things. Students are pointed daily to a uniquely Christian perspective of themselves and the world around them that is filled with patterns such as day/night and summer/winter. Pre-Kindergarteners learn how to interact in a godly manner in the classroom as they work with one another in daily activities. Students begin to learn to make choices as image-bearers of God.
Goals of Pre-K include:
- Encourage children to view themselves as unique creations of God, loved by God, and designed to serve and glorify Him.
- Provide children with a variety of active experiences designed to develop their God-given abilities and gifts.
- To develop each child’s capacity to interact with others as God commands and learning to love others as they love themselves.
- To foster within children a love of learning and a desire for knowledge about themselves and God’s world.
The Kindergarten program is designed to cultivate a sense of wonder at God’s design of the world and its inhabitants. Through Bible stories and the memorization of Scripture students learn of God’s faithfulness to His children throughout all ages. Through daily prayer students learn that God cares about every aspect of our lives and that nothing is too hard for God.
