Purpose:
Our purpose is to offer children a loving, Christian983648_295896217235864_921749357355054313_n environment and a quality, gospel-centered educational experience and developmentally appropriate activities that meet individual needs and inspire children to learn and grow.

Philosophy:
Our philosophy is that quality Christian educational programs should be marked by academic excellence and spiritual vitality, that nurtures the physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual development children need to excel.

Academic Objective:
Our academic objectives are to provide a quality program that will encourage growth and development in the areas of phonics, math, language arts, science, social skills, and motor skills, as well as improve emotional, physical, mental and spiritual development. Age-appropriate activities will be used to guide and encourage development.

Believing that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that knowledge has its foundation in the Word of God, we will teach God’s Word as absolute truth (Matthew 24:35; Psalm 119) and demonstrate Christ as preeminent in everything we do (Colossians 2:3, 2:6-10). Our staff will lead and teach in full accord with the Statements of Faith of Temple Baptist Church.

Curriculum:
iXL Academy Preschool has adopted the Wee Learn curriculum which reflects our preschool’s philosophy and goals. The series utilizes a 15076_265068090318677_1614824496_ndevelopmental approach to teaching preschoolers, which covers all areas of a child’s development including language and literacy, cognitive, social/emotional, physical, and spiritual. Teachers will incorporate a variety of other daily activities including large and small group interaction, alternation periods of quiet and active play, daily outdoor experiences (weather permitting), and music and movement.

Welcome!  We are glad that you are interested in iXL Academy Christian Preschool. We understand that preschool is in many ways the foundation for a child’s early education and we know parents in our community have a lot of options when it comes to choosing who will instruct and care for their children. We count it a privilege to partner with parents in the early education of their children and it is our goal to create a safe and happy environment where our students will thrive both academically and spiritually.

Preschool Goals:  It is our goal that through iXL Academy Preschool children will become adept at letter recognition and phonetic blending, number identification, and concepts, along with increased vocabulary skills and full knowledge of the proper behaviors necessary to enter a kindergarten classroom. The daily care and guidance for each child is very important to our staff and it is our hope that each family will feel comfortable and loved here. If you have questions or would like to schedule a time to meet with our director please contact Mrs. Hannah Huitt @ (573) 468-8044 ext. 118 or hannah@tbcsullivan.com.

iXLAcademy-tinyWelcome to the iXL Academy After School Program!  We are grateful for the opportunity to share in your child’s academic enrichment. We seek to provide a quality educational experience in a Christian environment, marked by academic excellence. We are excited about joining with you in creating a safe and encouraging environment where your child will thrive both academically and spiritually.

After School Goals:  Our goal for the after school program is to assist students with homework and academic enrichment that encourages scholastic, social, and spiritual development.  iXL Academy provides a safe, supervised setting for students to complete homework, receive special tutoring, and to participate in other activities that provide opportunities for continued physical, intellectual, and social growth and maturity.

Our secondary objective is to alleviate some of the burdens of working parents. We believe that during the hours that children are away from the home they should be provided with a quality program of well supervised educational activities, while their parents are provided with “peace of mind”.
