The TriQuest curriculum is challenging, complex, and collaborative.
The TriQuest curriculum consists of two types of classes: Core Classes and Extension Classes:
The core classes represent foundational skills that receive intense focus from the early years. These classes include Bible study, reading, writing, and mathematics. Emphasis is on demonstrating mastery and quickly remediating deficit areas.
The extension classes represent learning that is targeted at investigating and applying understanding to produce conclusions, responses, and artifacts.
Students incorporate skills acquired during the Core Classes, but also engage in a higher percentage of activities associated with project-based learning. This includes more opportunities for problem-solving and collaboration. Extension Classes include science, social studies, the arts, and music.
At TriQuest, we test our student’s ability and determination by:
developing perseverance to grow intellectually
learning that success is built on the foundation of trying and sometimes failing
developing the confidence to tackle difficult or unfamiliar situations
We incorporates many different aspects of learning in related parts by:
evaluating and solve multi-faceted problems using a variety of approaches
effectively processing information presented in different forms
deconstructing and resolving complex problems
We strengthen outcomes to work together by:
establishing positive working relationships
working together in community to deliver solutions
embracing teamwork and collaboration
Overview By Grade
The focus is establishing a strong foundation in reading, mathematics, writing, and basic principles of the Christian faith.
Phonics skills are developed while decoding strategies and comprehension are emphasized.
Students learn the mechanics of writing and produce more complex writing as the year progresses.
Math instruction centers on acquiring a working understanding of numbers and completing basic calculations with real-world problems.
Emphasis remains on core skills and Bible understanding.
Reading habits are cultivated during activities that support critical thinking and comprehension across many genres. Students develop and apply language skills to increase writing volume and skill.
Targeted math skills include place value, addition, subtraction, geometry, time, money, measurement, and fractions. Problem-solving skills are strengthened through writing equations and reading graphs.
In science, students discover the miracle of creation by studying life forms and celestial bodies. They use inquiry-based techniques to explain the properties of light and sound and investigate real-world dilemmas.
For social studies, students explore basic economic concepts and United States history through the study of historical figures and the geography where they lived and explored.
Character traits, higher-order thinking, and Biblical principles are emphasized throughout all subjects.
Development of reading engagement and comprehension continues. Students use a systematic writing approach to complete a variety of assignments while improving sentence structure.
Math features more challenging strategies to solve real-world, multi-step word problems involving multi-digit numbers and measurement.
Science topics include living things and features of the earth. Students develop inquiry skills through hands-on projects as they explore forces and motion and how the body works.
Social studies targets the geography, historical figures, and the Creek and Cherokee cultures of Georgia. A basic understanding of government and economics continues to be developed.
