Third, through Sixth Grade Students Are Challenged Through LEAP at Baptist Prep

At Baptist Prep, we are striving to challenge and inspire all students. We offer our LEAP program for those who show advanced aptitude in various disciplines and love to think outside of the box.

“LEAP is designed to foster creativity while engaging students and is currently available for 3rd through 6th grade with a plan to expand into 7th grade for the 2022-23 school year,” shared Dr. Jones.

“This program focuses on interdisciplinary, topic-based projects that encourage students to think critically and creatively. We recognize that all students learn differently, and we desire to come alongside to inspire all students to grow through the talents and gifts that God has given them. We plan to purposefully yet slowly expand this program based on the needs of students who long to be additionally challenged and engaged.”

Students can be recommended for LEAP based on several criteria. Students who qualify for LEAP in elementary are pulled out for a certain amount of time from their typical classroom schedule throughout the week to work on long-term projects that allow students to explore various disciplines.

“The idea of the program is to challenge those students who need more. These students need to be challenged to expand their horizons to make the most of their learning experience at Baptist Prep.”
