CDC Happenings

CDC Garden

The CDC garden sure is growing! The children are growing tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and cucumbers to eat and do fun learning activities!

Fly Away Butterflies!

Preschool 1b and Ms. Beverly let Painted Lady butterflies fly away in the garden after watching them grow from caterpillars to butterflies.

Parents Night Out

One Saturday night a month, parents are able to drop off their child from 5-9pm in the care of CDC teachers they know and love! The children do crafts and special activities, play outside, eat pizza, more playing, and then wind down to a short movie at the end of the night. Parents only pay $35 + $10 for each additional child!

Pre-K – 8th Grade

High quality academics in a family environment. Our well-qualified teachers work with each student to help them grow and achieve academically, socially, and spiritually. Small class sizes, high expectations, and strong teaching/learning settings provide opportunities for students successfully prepare for their future – in school and in life.

 

Homeschool Cover

For families in Alabama who wish to homeschool their children, Grace Lutheran offers a homeschool cover program. We believe that parents should be able to educate their children, choosing the curriculum that best fits their children’s needs. Students may participate in a homeschool hybrid through our Ala Carte program where students can attend in-person classes at Grace. Families in our Homeschool Cover may participate in chapel, assemblies, sports, clubs, and achievement testing.
