At TRCS, we believe that aspects of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are consistent with our mission to “prepare students through Bible-based education to impact the world for Christ.” Our goal is to produce students who are prepared to use their gifts from God. We have set a rigorous program that will meet or exceed the CCSS.
Here at TRCS, we maintain a list of proficiencies that we expect students to display at each grade level. This list of proficiencies will help teachers, students, and parents what the minimum grade level expectations may be at the end of the year. Please note that this list does not detail how the information will be taught, nor does it limit the teaching to only the items on these lists. Instead, this is a baseline of expectation for TRCS student excellence. This list is broader than the curriculum maps we write each year, but will be used to inform those documents and to ensure that our school is aligned with state and national standards in our pursuit of academic excellence.
We have also defined our minimum standards of biblical knowledge for each grade level in order to measure the spiritual formation of our students. This document will change year-to-year as we improve and learn. It is our hope that this list will exhibit that TRCS is a ministry equal to the time and resources invested.
