The Murray Academy is a full day preschool program for three-year-old and four-year-old students. The inaugural class of the Murray Academy will begin in the fall of 2023 with the opening of the state-of-the-art Stuart and Eulene Murray Academy, located on the Lower School campus of Mount Pisgah Christian School.
Each day students engage with learning in a loving environment through interactive activities and play. With small classroom sizes, teachers prepare Preschool 3s and 4s students for the next stage of learning.
Children open a new world of discovery through technology and multi-sensory experiments. Students participate in Chapel, Atelier, music, P.E. and STEAM classes each week. They grow in faith through chapel programs featuring singing and dancing and Bible curriculum.
In the Atelier space, our Atelierista, or art specialist, provides a variety of creative experiences through music, clay, light and shadow, loose parts, paint, nature, movement and sound. Curriculum and Schedule
In the Murray Academy, elements of formal instruction and curriculum will be introduced to strategically prepare children for school. Children will have substantial opportunities to focus on gross and fine motor skills and social and emotional development. Basic concepts in language arts, math, and science will be introduced in engaging activities and through the arts and experiments. In the Murray Academy, the majority of instruction is completed in the morning, followed by an afternoon that includes a designated lunchtime, snack time, and rest time.
