Our Middle School students learn to be responsible, independent learners who love to share their love of knowledge with others. They learn how to use principles of Christianity in their everyday life, so that they spread the love Christ to the world around them.
Middle School students learn through different learning styles. They create investigations in science and develop art projects that show learning in the sciences and social sciences. Students form groups and learn from each other, and they display their learning by speaking, listening, writing, sharing their knowledge with their younger peers. Computers and tablets are used to support their learning. In the spring, they display their learning through a science fair and an art fair.
Sixth graders learn to build on their knowledge from their elementary years. They use previously established concepts to take their learning to new heights. Students think critically and creatively, using collaboration and discovery, and they use writing and art to support their learning. Most importantly, they learn the foundation of Christian living.
Seventh graders are preparing for the rigor of high school and beyond. These students learn the basics of the Christian doctrine and how to apply it their daily lives. In addition, they use technology, experiments, observations, and recordkeeping to solve every day problems. They explore topics of their own choosing through research, family traditions, and interviewing.
Eighth graders take their learning to new heights. They continue learn how Christ makes a difference in their lives, as well as their world. They share their love for Christ in a variety of ways. By helping younger children in our school, they show that they care beyond their personal selves.
