Elementary Program

Destiny School of the Arts is growing into a K-5th grade elementary school focused on academics and arts integration! We have built a successful kindergarten program that began in the Fall of 2011. Due to both the success of our approach and overwhelming parent request, we launched an elementary school based on academic excellence through arts integration. In the fall of 2016, we began with our first ever 1st grade class. Each year we will add an additional grade until we are a full-fledged elementary school (K-5th grade).

Curriculum


  • Destiny School of the Arts uses the A Beka curriculum for both phonics/reading and mathematics. We use our own curriculum for literature, creative writing, social studies, science, and Spanish. In addition, our curriculum covers Virginia Standards of Learning and D’Nealian handwriting.

  • Art

    Every child has a creative side and most love to get their hands dirty! This class uses children’s natural creative impulses to develop works of art and simultaneously develop fine motor skills needed for writing and cutting. Each child will utilize color in many different ways as they draw and sketch letters and words.

    Creative Movement

    Imagination is the key to this class. The students’ imagination will soar as they experience what it feels like to move like the wind or pounce like a tiger. Every class will emphasize creative movement skills that help develop balance, hand-eye coordination, sports’ fundamentals, and focus skills such as listening and following directions. Sequencing skills will also be put into practice as the students dance the beginning and ending segments of stories and songs.

    Music

    Because of their natural love for music, children are motivated to develop their singing, listening, and focus skills. Each child is given the opportunity to sing, play musical instruments, and explore musical concept at a developmentally appropriate level. This class introduces essential building blocks to many concepts such as letter sounds, numbers, sequencing, and patterns.
