Lower School

The early childhood years play a formative role in establishing a student’s success later in life. Flint River's preschool and kindergarten program focuses on building strong academics through challenging and engaging curriculum. Beginning at age three, we offer an energetic, nurturing, interactive environment where students experience academic and social success.

We strive to provide educational opportunities that will engage every student and prepare students with current and future competencies to compete and succeed in a complex and ever changing world. At this stage of learning students require rigorous instruction that presents opportunities to discover and make connections. Our lower school teachers are eager to see each student succeed by implementing a variety of tools to teach Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies. In support  of FRA’s vision, our technology initiative seeks to create a challenging, yet supportive atmosphere in which to learn and succeed. The use of technology does not diminish the vital role of the teacher or the school as an independent institution.

Journeys  is a comprehensive K-5 English Language Arts program that exposes students to both literature and informational texts, while building on foundational skills for reading, writing, and comprehension. In mathematics, Go Math provides a seamless path to ensure that students can embrace new math skills while building on known skills. Teachers have a variety of resources available to both support and encourage appropriate levels of depth and rigor for real world problem solving. Science concepts are key to understanding the world around us. Teachers use a variety of resources and hands-on, discovery models to establish a firm foundation from which a student can build and succeed. Social Studies is a multidisciplinary approach to the study of people, their physical environment, histories, traditions and cultures. Flint River Academy encourages high expectations for success and academic excellence through the development of the mind, body and spirit.

We invite you to visit us. Please consider scheduling a tour to learn more about Flint River Academy. In a one-on-one conversation, it allows us to learn more about your individual child. In the Lower School, we have the blessing to watch our students develop from very young students to accomplished, independent Middle School students. We can think of no greater privilege than to be life changers.
