All classes at TSCS are designed on a block schedule, allowing students to attend just two days per week, three days per week, or a full five days per week depending on their course of study and family preference.
Classes from the classical core curriculum (Math, Science, Humanities, and Foreign Language) take place Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Tuesday and Thursday are reserved for Fine Arts Studio, PE, Choir, Reading Hall, Special Topics Tutorials, individual music lessons, sports team practice, and tutoring, all of which are administered by full-time faculty throughout the day.
This schedule breaks the school day into 5 periods, instead of the typical 7-8, allowing for longer class periods and more leisurely breaks.
As a result, our Lower School students have more time for flexible, active free play, and Upper School students have the time and personalized support they need to complete meaningful and rigorous work during the school day, with the added bonus of learning the essential study and time management skills they will need to succeed in college.
In both cases, the block schedule reduces the amount of homework to complete after school, allowing students more time for their church and family, and helping them to lead more balanced lives.
