Grammar (Grades K-6)
In Mars Hill Academy Grammar School we carefully and intentionally cultivate the genuine lifelong love of learning through classic children's literature, vibrant and interactive history and geography studies, engaging math, science, and language exercises, and the life-enriching classes of art and music.
Students build strong fundamentals in the "grammar" (i.e. basic elements) of the core disciplines in a lively environment thorugh music, repetition, movement, rhymes, and singing. Art, music, and physical education are embraced as critical comonents of personal development and are vital to life at Mars Hill. At the core of every subject is the Word of God and a vision for engaging with Him through the study of His world.
Grammar School classroom learning is enhanced by field trips, projects, and special celebration days. Highlights include Mother Goose Day and Reformation Day (K), Geography Day (1st), Greek Day and Charlotte's Web Day (2nd), Roman Day and Little House on the Prairie Day (3rd), Medieval Day and a visit to the Loveland Castle (4th), Hobbit Day (5th), Civil War Day and a trip to the Ohio State Capitol (6th). Grammar School students also visit Cincinnati Music Hall to enjoy the symphony, the ballet, and other fine arts performances. Each activity provides intentional opportunities for learning enrichment.
Faculty who embody the principles of Christ-centered learning, are the heartbeat of Mars Hill Academy. Teachers with a love for the Lord and their students create warm, supportive classrooms in which to nurture student growth. Modeling Christian character and values, they partner with parents to shepherd the hearts of their children.
Mars Hill Academy Grammar School students thrive in an orderly, engaging, and joyful learning environment in which they are taught to respect and serve others, and to love their neighbors as themselves. In seventh grade they move on to Logic.
