Piedmont offers a full-time program, Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. - 3:15 p.m, three full days, Monday through Wednesday, or five half days dismissing at 11:45 am. Students entering K3 should be three years old by September 30; and must be toilet trained.  Students entering K4 should be four years old by September 30, and must be toilet trained.

Our preschool programs use the ABeka curriculum. Colors, numbers, and letter recognition are taught, and phonics are introduced. During their day, the students will have recess, crafts, and nap and snack times. They attend Art, Library, Spanish and Computer elective classes. At the end of the school year, the students are counting and doing simple addition and subtraction. They are also reading and writing one syllable words.

Kindergarten-6th Grade

Our elementary students receive a firm academic foundation in all subject areas, especially in reading and math.  While many schools have stopped teaching reading phonetically, we feel that it is the key to achieving excellence in reading. Besides academics, our elementary students have Spanish, Music, Art and Physical Education classes.  All of our students are awarded numerous opportunities throughout each school year to sing, speak, or act in our Christmas performances and chapels.  Not only is Piedmont’s elementary curriculum strong academically, but it is Christian-based, including a daily Bible lesson.  Due to the well-rounded education that they receive, our elementary students are prepared for what lies ahead in their middle-school and high-school years.

 

7th - 12th Grade

Our secondary students receive a solid academic education with truths founded in the Word of God. We challenge our students and train them to do their best in everything because they are doing it for God. Along with academics, our students in grades 5-12 are offered girls’ volleyball, co-ed basketball, and co-ed soccer. They are given the opportunity to perform in our praise band in Wednesday chapel services or to sing, speak, or act in our holiday performances. Our high school students place well in standardized testing and on their college entrance exams. When our seniors graduate from Piedmont, we feel that they are more than spiritually and academically ready for their entry into the real world.

Beginning Fall 2018, Piedmont will offer dual enrollment high school credit through classes taken at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College.

Our graduates have been accepted to the Virginia Military Institute, James Madison University, Liberty University, Randolph Macon College, the University of Richmond, the University of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia Tech, and other community and Christian colleges and universities throughout the country.

Homeschoolers

Piedmont is now offering secondary classes and team sports for homeschoolers. For more information, or to register for classes, please contact the school office at (540) 872-3543.
 

STANDARDIZED TESTING SCORES

PCS students take tests and the results are compared to national averages.

These are group scores for each grade called Mean Norm Curve Equivalent.

MNCE grades of 34 to 67 would be considered in the average range.

So, grades scored at a 65 would be considered high average and a 40 would be low average.

A 65 means this group scored as high as or better than 65 percent of students nationwide.

Some of these grades only had 1, 2, or 3 students enrolled and may not be

a fair way of making comparisons for year-to-year progress.
