About The Lower School

Bulloch Academy begins its educational opportunities for students as early as age four through our Lower School K-4 pre-kindergarten program, which is funded by the Georgia Lottery. The school begins its own commitment to students with its five-year-old kindergarten program and both grades are housed in a separate kindergarten wing, which is attached to the lower school.

The curriculums for these two programs are dictated by the developmental progress of young children in such areas as language, mathematics, creative expression, and self-help. Developing positive attitudes to family, home, school and friends, learning appropriate skills, and knowledge are also priority objectives.

Curriculum

In grades one through five, which are housed in the lower-school building and mobile units, the traditional disciplines of language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science, plus STEM, computer technology, physical education, Spanish, art, and music are covered thoroughly in a small classroom setting where each child can receive that all-important individual attention.

Curriculum highlights include the Reading Wonders series, hands-on Inspire Science, and McGraw Hill My Math series. Reading Wonders is a comprehensive pre-k through 6th literacy program, containing research-based print and digital resources. These resources build strong literacy foundations, grammar, and writing skills through access to fiction and nonfiction texts. The McGraw Hill My Math series stresses higher thinking and reasoning skills through real-world applicable methods. Inspire Science is developed around the 5E (engage, explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate) science framework in which students investigate, problem-solve, argue, and discuss scientific phenomena to make sense of the world from their perspective. All of these programs include an online component for students.
