Elementary School

At Lima Christian, we believe that love for life and learning starts with a Christ-centered education.

Our elementary school encompasses kindergarten through 5th grades. Students at Lima Christian thrive in a nurturing environment where each child is encouraged to pursue their gifts, affirmed for demonstrating Christ-like character, and challenged to grow academically, socially, and spiritually. 

Our elementary curriculum exceeds the common core standards and emphasizes reading comprehension, writing, and a firm foundation in math facts and strategies needed for middle school. Teachers work with students at this formative stage to develop good study skills and habits.

Differentiated learning and a 6:1 student:teacher ratio ensures a very personal learning environment. Our teachers recognize that a dynamic education is achieved through updated curriculum, high academic standards, field trips, service projects, guest speakers, character development, and much more.
