The Ladder Program

“ Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6) Part of that training is giving our children spiritual building blocks to form a solid foundation. Our Ladder Program was designed and revised to offer students and parents some of the important pieces to help in that construction project.

In the program, the child is asked to learn BY HEART (And hopefully keep in their heart) 7 “pieces for each ladder. An adult signs the card by each item learned and when it is completed, turns it in.
