NBCA Elementary classes provides a traditional education while attempting to challenge students for an ever-changing society. The curriculum outlined for NBCA builds on the basic skills such as reading and math while incorporating English, spelling, science, history, handwriting, and health. The curriculum is enhanced through critical thinking activities and hands-on projects. Phonics-based reading instruction is given from kindergarten through second grade while hands-on learning projects and practice drills enhance math instruction.
