4th grade students spend the first half of the year learning recorders as a preparation for band. Mid-year, they are exposed to concert band instruments and select from flute, clarinet, trumpet or trombone.
5th and 6th grade students have band three times per week and choose concert band instruments; flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, French horn, trombone, baritone, tuba, or percussion. Students perform at the yearly JCS Christmas concert and the Spring Band and Choir concert. Additional opportunities are offered for solo competition and performances.
It is our goal to partner with parents for the education of their children and to foster an atmosphere wherein our students can excel academically and spiritually. In growing your child spiritually, the Lower School engages in chapel services which are held in the Gymnatorium where age-appropriate “sermonettes” are delivered to JCS Lower School students through local community pastors along with our Campus Pastor Charlie Hubbard. Praise and worship time, along with Christian character traits of the month (click for more details) are fostered during chapel as well.
Jupiter Christian School students in receive one or two periods of music instruction every week. The goals of this program are to insure that each student completing the program can
Perceive the elements of music
Organize musical sounds
Demonstrate an effective response to music
These goals are achieved through singing, listening, moving to music, playing rhythm instruments, creating, writing and reading music.
Fifth and sixth grade students may elect to audition for the Lower School Choir. Participating students are encouraged to fully develop their singing voices through bi-weekly classes and by performing in our school productions.
Some of the programs that our students perform in, include Veterans Day, Christmas Program, visiting nursing homes, International Festivals, Grandparents Day, and our annual Spring concert. The themes of our Grandparents Day vary every year. We have done programs including all Hymns, Broadway style music, Disney, and African American Spirituals. In all of our programs we encourage our students to “Let their light so shine before men that they may see their good works and glorify their Father in Heaven.”
Exceptional Student Education (ESE) programs provide services that support learning opportunities for all exceptional students. Specially designed instruction is delivered to provide support and differentiation to students that have learning differences as well as students who are gifted. Jupiter Christian School recognizes that each student learns differently and offers programs that support and enrich students across the learning spectrum. JCS provides a limited range of supports and accommodations with specific focus on advancement and growth for each student. For more information about the ESE Services, click here.
Eagle Extended Care offers a safe and nurturing environment where students will have snack time, homework/study time, active outdoor play, indoor games and reading time. For more information or to register, click here.

The Lower School Spanish program at Jupiter Christian School introduces beginning vocabulary and develops student interest through creative and interactive activities. The curriculum is designed thematically and targets learning through listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Progressively, the higher the grade level, the more advanced the curriculum and increased frequency of their classroom visit to the Spanish room.
The Lower School student council representatives show a servant’s heart for helping others. These students were selected by their peers to be a Godly example to others. The student council responsibilities include morning announcements and service projects throughout the year that help people in our community and surrounding areas. Past community services have included collecting items for the missions in West Virginia, Thanksgiving Food Drive, Penny War, packing Christmas stockings for Jupiter Head Start and local charities around our town. Our student council members strive to share the love of Jesus through their community service projects.
