Academics at New Danville
New Danville features a strong early childhood program that prepares students for the next levels of learning. (See PreK and Kindergarten information.)
Nurturing teachers create a fun, safe environment for learning at New Danville. But school must be more than fun, nurture and enrichment — parents expect academic excellence in core subjects such as reading, writing and mathematics. In addition to these and other core subjects that are listed in the Curriculum section of this website, technology, information literacy, career education, wellness, and writing are integrated into the curriculum along with faith and character development. Along with academic instruction, Christian teachers, coaches, administrators and staff model Christ’s love to students and incorporate Christ’s teachings into the classroom and daily work.
New Danville teachers take time for individual instruction and nurturing, starting in the early grades. Our PreK program is designed to create a secure and nurturing environment that develops a love for school and a love of learning within the context of a real school environment. Experiencing a regular school-day schedule and a regular school environment better prepares students for going to a real school for kindergarten and first grade. LM offers the option of up to five full days of PreK per week, and our program is for children who are age 4 at the start of the school year. Kindergarten is also a full-day program. Before and after school care is available.

The elementary program emphasizes foundational skills, habits and knowledge for success in middle school and beyond. Classes are self-contained, except for physical education, music, art and makerspace, which are taught by specialists in classrooms devoted to those subjects. At LM, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) are an integral part of the curriculum and reinforce learning in many other subject areas such as history and geography.
Our full-day kindergarten classes help students develop a love of learning in a nurturing environment. Our kindergarten is a success-based program that teaches academics with developmentally-appropriate practices and prepares children to flourish in first grade.
Kindergarten is offered up to five-days per week with the option of a three-day or four-day program. Additional days offer additional opportunities.
