Middle School

Grades 6-8

The middle school program takes the critical thinking skills and academic concepts that were taught in the elementary program and takes students to the next level in English, math, science, social studies and Bible. By building on their foundation of academics, established as elementary students, middle schoolers will prepare for the rigors of high school courses and begin to identify areas in which they have interests and may wish to challenge themselves through honors courses at the high school level. Students also have opportunities to explore elective subjects such as computer, art, drama, music and journalism and nurture specific talents and interests.

Curriculum & Testing
