Learning Place

Curtis Baptist School is now participating in the Georgia Special Needs Scholarship Program. To be eligible, students must have been Georgia public school students in the past year and have had an Individual Education Plan.

Teachers in The Learning Place teach to the students’ strengths as they help with the remediation of the students’ weaknesses. A Christ-based curriculum is used to teach every student where they are to become what God intends for them to be. A combination of textbooks, manipulatives, computer programs, and activities are used to address the learning style of each student.
