PRESCHOOL (Ages 2-5)
At Crown of Life, it is an honor and a privilege to minister to young children and their families in the first step of the school experience through our Early Childhood Program. We strive to meet the individual needs of children and their families in a nurturing and loving environment.
Our child-centered programs are developed and facilitated by our degreed and certified teachers who strive to meet the unique needs of our young learners. We provide developmentally appropriate, active learning opportunities to help each child discover their potential.
While balancing learning through play and academic instruction, our preschool program is theme-based and we incorporate each theme into all aspects of our day including language arts, math, science, and social studies. Preschoolers participate in both teacher-led and student-led activities along with free choice centers. We have “Visit With God” time each day and we go to Spanish, Art, P.E. Chapel, Rise and Shine and the library each week. In addition to our curriculum, the older preschoolers are exposed to “sight words” and “easy readers” if developmentally appropriate for the child.
We invite you to join us! It’s a great place for your child to grow.

UPPER SCHOOL (Grades 5-8)
Upper School shapes the adult your child will become. This is a time that can be very challenging filled with physical and emotional changes. Physical changes at school include changing classes, multiple teachers and individual lockers. This combined with the physical and emotional changes of puberty which include; a new level of self-doubt, insecurity and confusion all add stress to any middle school student’s day.
It takes a strong, yet nurturing teacher to properly lead these young adults. Our highly degreed staff recognize these challenges and are committed to advising these students in order to shape their personalities and help them become tomorrow’s leaders.
Research shows that children take ownership of their faith during the middle school years. The COLLS teachers and staff work diligently with students during these developmental years to help them become stronger in their faith and in themselves. By teaching faith, we build respectful, self-confident, reliable students who make better choices in high school and in life.
At COLLS, religion is more than just a lecture. Two days a week our religion class is led by a pastor. The other three days students are actively engaged in mission work and showing Jesus’ love. They are planning, developing, and implementing ways to serve our community. This is truly a hands on approach to religion.
COLLS Upper School students are required to obtain a minimum of 30 hours of community service per school year. Our students have received high honors and recognition for their dedication to our community. Studies show students who volunteer have an increased desire to learn, are more productive, develop a sense of purpose and deter from negative behaviors and choices.
