Program Details

Our Elmwood 1st and 2nd grade students will meet in our Shawnee Alliance classroom right next door to the school. Kindergarten students may enroll beginning at the end of the 23-24 school year for the following school year when they are in first grade.

We are very excited to announce that Maplewood students have a much shorter commute to their new classroom hosted by Gardendale Church of God on Spencerville Road! Our LifeWise vans will transport your 3rd and 4th graders to this new location. Students will attend once a week on the same day. The time slots are approved by the schools to take place during a special.

ANNOUNCING the addition of 5th and 6th grade Shawnee Middle School classes. These will be held at Shawnee Alliance Church transported by our LifeWise vans. 5th grade students attend once a week during the study hall period. 6th grade students will attend once a week during their lunch/recess period. Students may bring their lunches with them to have during LifeWise.
