Student Life

Our classrooms offer a small student to teacher ratio, helping many students to consistently perform above grade level during Stanford 10 national testing. This environment produces hearts devoted to Jesus Christ, directing them to serve Him in their home, churches and society.

What Extracurricular Activities Do We Offer Your Child?

Elementary Music Program

Beginning in 1st grade (2 – 3 times per week).  Students in the first and second grade are introduced to music and reading notes, rhythm and singing. Students in the third and fourth grade begin playing flutophones so they gain experience fingering an instrument and reading notes.  This elementary music program prepares them for going into band in the 5th grade.

Band

The band classes offered include 5th & 6th grade Beginning Band, 6th Grade Intermediate Band (2nd year players), Jr. High Concert Band (7th & 8th grade), Jazz Band (6th – 12th grade), and High School Concert Band. All grade levels have the opportunity participate in our annual Christmas production, Fall Band Concert, and Spring Band Concert. Other performance opportunities include the South Mountain Village Parade, Pep Band, and local area band festivals.  The 91st Psalm Eagle Bands were founded in 2006 under the direction of our Principal Rob Arthurs.  All band classes meet 5 days a week.

Technology

The 91st Psalm Christian School Technology curriculum is designed to introduce students to the breadth of the field of computer science through an exploration of engaging and accessible topics.

Students are encouraged to give their input in all areas, including the process of choosing the shows we perform.
