First grade is an exciting year of robust reading, creative writing and math basics. Our teachers work with them on building a love for learning, blessing those around us, and belonging to God.

An integral part of building community at Zeeland Christian School is being part of a Family Group. Students are all assigned a Family Group in First Grade. They stay with their Family Group all the way through ZCS. Each Family Group has 2-3 students from every grade level. The older students are responsible for the younger students.
Together, they study the Bible, they work on service projects and sometimes, they just hang out and have fun! The Zeeland Christian community is stronger because of these multi-age relationships and the mentoring that takes place within the Family Groups.
