The Middle School program creates an environment that is warm, kind, and inviting. Our faculty and staff guide our middle schoolers through a high-level, Christian-based academic journey that focuses upon the development of critical thinkers and builds upon the skills necessary to be successful in Upper School. The Middle School curriculum offers enrichment classes in the fine arts, technology, and world languages as well as multiple athletic programs.
Sixth grade is a year of transition from elementary to the middle school. To help ease this transition, the sixth grade is semi-departmentalized. For the first time, students change classes during the school day. English, reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and geography are taught. Accelerated Reader and STAR Reading are included in the reading program. Students take beginning band. Students work with the band director to choose an instrument and are given instruction in playing that instrument. Each student is assigned a locker which is located in the same hall as the classrooms. Opportunities for extracurricular activities include football, basketball, cheerleading, baseball, and softball.
