Elementary student reading in the library

The Charles Finney School's Elementary program is designed to help your child develop a love of learning.

Students in Pre-Kindergarten - 5th Grade experience small class sizes with lots of individual attention. Our Elementary School faculty have years of experience teaching a core elementary curriculum according to New York State requirements while adding fun, hands-on activities, field trips, and using the latest Smartboard technology. Elementary students are encouraged to learn how to work and play together in a safe, fun, and nurturing atmosphere. The Elementary School curriculum also includes Bible, Music, Art, Technology, Library, Science Enrichment, and Physical Education. Students grow in their knowledge of Christ through daily prayer and devotions, learning Bible stories and Scripture, character-building programs, and attending a weekly chapel.

Literacy and Enrichment

The elementary school has a Literacy and Enrichment Room which supports, extends and enriches learning for students in grades K-8. Students will be given assessments to determine their level in reading and mathematics. Students not meeting grade level benchmarks will meet with the Literacy and Enrichment Specialist, Mrs. Snyder for individual and small group support. Mrs. Snyder also works with classroom teachers to provide opportunities for those students working above grade level.
