Enroll in Elementary School

wesleyan elementary school

Grades 1-5

During their elementary years, First Wesleyan Christian School students work at an accelerated academic pace while enjoying an enriched curriculum—including weekly classes in art, computer, music, P.E., and Spanish. All these activities occur in a safe, positive, Christian environment free from common bullying, profanity, and violence.

Raising Spiritual & Community Leaders

Spiritual Emphasis

Along with quality, traditional academics, FWCS seeks to Educate for Eternity by systematically integrating a traditional Biblical world-life-view and value system throughout all of its academic instruction and student activities. To accomplish this goal, FWCS employs only committed Christians who are expected to spontaneously teach and model spiritual truths. Middle school students receive instruction in church history and creation versus evolution issues. All of the history and science texts used by FWCS are from recognized Christian publishers. All students in grades 2-8 are trained how to use study Bibles, maps, charts, etc. FWCS seeks to present Christ as Creator, Savior, and Lord in every subject area and school activity.

Public Speaking Emphasis

FWCS has made the equipping of its students with advanced public speaking skills a core part of its curriculum. As part of its English curriculum, all students in grades 1-8 are required annually to prepare and perform a poem or speech. Students are taught specific public speaking skills as they relate to proper stance, eye contact, voice inflections, gestures, etc. After several years of this training, most FWCS students become quite proficient and confident public speakers.

Career & Leadership Training

To achieve its objectives of preparing future leaders for churches and employers, FWCS has established several unique programs. To equip future church leaders, FWCS trains all middle school students in vocal music, creative writing, Bible study skills, and public speaking. FWCS has created a computer technology program which aims to equip all middle school students with skills in keyboarding, the Internet, and current Microsoft softwares, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, etc. Computer instruction usually takes place in small classes of six to eight students.

What parents say about FWCS

Since we live in Clover, SC, we checked out various schools in York County and Gaston County before settling on First Wesleyan. No other school came close to FWCS. It had everything we wanted and needed for our daughter, Ella. We know without a doubt our daughter is in great and caring hands.
