Pilgrim offers play-based Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs that are designed to help children feel safe and loved. We do not set arbitrary universal goals, but rather, we support children as they achieve their individual goals. Our 1:10 teacher to student ratio in Pre-K and our 1:16 teacher to student ratio in Kindergarten, allow students to receive the attention they need to grow and learn.

What Are Parents Saying?
Pilgrim is a caring, nurturing and safe environment for our two kids. We’ve been parents of Pilgrim students for 9 years now, starting in early childhood program up through junior high. The classes are small, the teachers are dedicated, experienced and they genuinely care for our children. The older children become leaders and chapel partners for the younger ones. From the play-based learning approach in early childhood to the upper grades academic challenges, the school educates the whole child and I feel strongly that our children will be well prepared for high school when the time comes.—Tricia K.
