elementary school studyEducation is one of the core values of people in Northville, Michigan. Northwest of Detroit and northeast of Ann Arbor, our town is within just a short drive of some of the premier educational institutions in Michigan. There are excellent public and private schools throughout the region; however, St. Paul Lutheran School has a commitment to providing the highest quality academics in a Christ-centered environment. Our teachers have a biblical worldview that helps shape how they present the way in which the subjects they teach are influenced by God’s Word and work in the world. 

Attending school remotely has opened doors for parents to become more involved in their children’s schoolwork and studying. High school students are often more independent than younger children; however, for parents of elementary and middle school-aged students in the region, it can be difficult to figure out the best ways in which they can help their children study. Our upper and lower school teachers have the experience and expertise they need to effectively communicate complex material in a manner that relates to their students. We are happy to provide advice you need to help your children study. 

How To Help Elementary and Middle School Aged Students Study

Our lower grade, elementary-aged students study the stories and narratives of Scripture and are provided with applications for life. Our upper grades are studying systematic theology and Christian doctrine per Luther’s Small Catechism. All that is to say that we have found our students are successful studying deep aspects of faith and Scripture, even at young ages. 

When it comes to helping young students study at home, here are a few key tips:

  • Expect your children to grasp concepts you might otherwise imagine they are too young to understand
  • Help your children organize their assignments and study goals
  • Use a calendar to keep up with goals and due dates
  • Have a conversation with your teachers about study ideas and methods
  • Pay attention to the methods of learning that seem most effective for your child
  • Make sure they have a space that is free from distractions 
  • Frequently evaluate what is working and what you should change 

Our school merges Christian education with secular branches of learning to provide a well-rounded education. The goal of our school is to help our students understand how to respond to the ideas presented in multiple subjects through a Christ-centered lens. It is expected that parents will support our curriculum. If you want to know more about our school, please reach out to the team at St. Paul Lutheran School in Northville, MI.
