Leadership and Arts Academy (1st-6th)

1st Grade

This class is so dynamic that kindergarten scholars walk by first grade classroom dreaming about being inside and the jubilant thought of becoming a first grader! In the wonderful world of “Firsties”, we have hands-on fantastic fun while learning and building friendships. Every academic experience in first grade is supported by music and movement.

“Firsties” learn to be mindful and apply the “power of yet” as we overcome great challenges together. In mathematics - no problem is too big we can’t solve using our learning strategies. When reading, a magical world full of adventure will be explored no matter what reading level the scholar is on. In science, we learn about the beautiful world God created all around us. As we work on our cursive writing skills daily, every detail matters! During Social Studies, we love exploring the importance of rules and jobs in our community. Although there are tons to learn using the Texas TEKS, we are determined to conquer the year with great effort and confidence.

Our bible lessons are beyond amazing -- engaging, fun, Spirit-led. Not only do we have research-based brain breaks, but we also LOVE praise breaks! Our Scholars are not afraid to pray and praise God throughout their day! Through the power of prayer, U of D teaches Scholars they are loved and valued by God, even beyond mistakes they make. We believe in equipping our scholars with skills that will help them navigate through life, such as demonstrating Faith, Leadership, Etiquette, Character and Service daily.
All things in first grade are done for the love of “firsties” to meet their spiritual and academic needs. “Every scholar matters and every moment counts”.

2nd Grade

How would you like your scholar to be a part of an outstanding team? A “Dream Team” if you will. A team that’s enthusiastic and mature to get the job done. A team that takes college-style learning to a second grade level. Intriguing hands-on activities to build automaticity in all academic subjects. Where else can a second grade scholar learn how to operate and run a technical production that CNN, Fox News, even Disney would pay for! The same team that applies Christian-based learning to every shot they make in life. When your second grade scholar becomes a part of this team at the Leadership and Arts Academy, they will develop a 2 Legit 2 Quit attitude in:

Reading - no word is too complex to overcome.
Math - no problem too difficult to solve.
Science - no project too tedious to figure out.
Social Studies - no historical fact too complicated to understand.

Dreamers — that’s what we are — for God has plans for our lives. Do you believe it? If so, consider your scholar for our winning team - the second grade “Dream Team” at the University of Dreams at IBOC Leadership and Arts Academy.
