From The Elementary School Principals

Thank you for your interest in Briarcrest. We know that making the decision about which school will be the best fit for your child is extremely important.

Schools can change lives, and you want your children to be in a Christian environment where they will be encouraged and inspired to develop their mind, body and spirit. Briarcrest has been that kind of place for over 7,000 graduates since our first graduating class in 1974.

We hope that the information on this website will help to answer some of your questions: questions about the outstanding academics, the extensive course offerings, and the wide array of extracurricular activities at Briarcrest. We hope that we are able to give you a clear picture of Briarcrest's strong commitment to preparing students for college and for life.

But what truly distinguishes Briarcrest from other private schools in the Mid-South cannot be found in the descriptions of our curriculum or our extracurricular programs. Briarcrest has a devoted, nurturing faculty that is dedicated to the development of well-rounded students in a Christian environment in which our students flourish.
Briarcrest is a special place. We invite you come and take a tour to see what Briarcrest is all about.

Elementary Academics

Preschool Academics
Ages 2, 3 & 4

In a nurturing and playful environment, caring and committed teachers launch a child's Christian educational experience by stimulating thinking skills, while addressing individual learning needs. The curriculum includes reading and writing, math, science, social studies, Spanish, and Bible. Students are given ample opportunities for listening, speaking, writing, drawing and painting, and imaginative play. Class sizes are small, with an assistant teacher in each room.

Lower Elementary Academics
Kindergarten–Grade 1

To lay the essential foundation each child needs, the fundamentals of reading, writing, mathematics, and computer proficiency are taught, along with instruction in Spanish, physical education, art, music, computer, and library/study skills. Bible instruction and Christian values are incorporated into daily teaching, and students worship in their own chapel service every week.


Upper Elementary Academics
Grades 2–5

Upper Elementary students expand their knowledge in the basic areas of reading, writing, and math, while broadening their horizons in science, social studies, computer skills, and Spanish. Instruction in Bible, art, music, and P.E., plus a weekly chapel program, rounds out the student's educational experience. There are many opportunities for extracurricular activities, including participation in the school's award-winning Saintly Singers choir. A-Team, the elementary leadership group, gives interested students many occasions to gain confidence in public speaking and leading their peers.
