Our classes are organized similar to the “Little Red School House.” There are four age-groups:
Each day, the primary goals of KA instructors and personnel are to:
Kimber Academy holds core classes three days a week, for four hours each day. Lehi Kimber Academy offer different extracurriculars each year. If you have an elective you would like to teach please let us know!
Every day, the first class begins with a devotional, usually conducted by class officers who have been interviewed and selected by the local Parent Advisory Council.
The devotional is conducted as follows, although the order may vary:
Following the devotional, students spend about 15 minutes reviewing the previous day’s religious studies. This review is called a "recall exercise", and is good practice for students to exercise their minds in remembering past information, and learning to use and listen to God’s spirit to recall facts and stories.
After the recall exercise, the instructor introduces new material for study in the subject of Religion. The Senior Classes read scriptures, have an in-depth discussion, take notes, and do workbooks in class.
Honor & Dress Code
"The American people owe it to themselves, and to the cause of free government, to prove by their establishments for the advancement and diffusion of knowledge, that their political Institutions, which are attracting observation from every quarter, and are respected as models, by the new-born states in our own hemisphere, are as favorable to the intellectual and moral improvement of man, as they are conformable to his individual & social rights. What spectacle can be more edifying or more seasonable, than that of liberty & learning, each leaning on the other for their mutual & surest support?"
- James Madison, 1822
After religious studies, Senior Class students do individual work, guided by the teacher and class assistants in their studies of math, language arts, and science.
During the last 50 minutes of the 4-hour day, Senior Class students study history. The instructor teaches the history lessons while students take notes. The subjects of history are taught in trimesters during each school year:
After the devotional, recall exercise, and religious studies, students begin their work in language arts. They practice cursive writing skills, work with principle-based learning exercises and perform academic service projects.
After a short 10-minute break, the instructor has music time and/or story time. This is followed by studies of principle-based math. Students then do research for their science books, which they create themselves.
The last part of the day is spent in the study of history. The studies are integrated into three main areas of application: World History, American History, and Religious History. All religions are encouraged to study their own history and origin as they developed in America.
After the devotional, recall exercise, and religious studies, Junior-A Class children work on language arts skills – learning cursive writing, parts of speech, grammar, manners, and creative writing along with academic service projects.
Following language arts, the children work on their math books, working with manipulatives as well as activities based on simple mathematical principles.
After a short break, the children have music time and a story. Then they enjoy putting together picture books and doing hands-on activities involving the science subject chosen.
History concludes the day, based on the Kimber “I Love America” series, studying their American Heritage with stories, games, songs and activities.
This class like the others starts with religious studies. The children are at an age where they are being trained on what to do during this time. They do lots of hands on activities and enjoy structured play time.
They participate in math and science activities as well as working on reading each day. We focus on one on one time with them as well as the time that they get to spend each day reading with their reading partners from the older classes.
They enjoy play time outside as the weather permits. They end their day with History like the older students and they love the activities that go with the curriculum. We try to help them with reading as often as possible throughout each day.
