The middle school program challenges students in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades to explore their talents academically, physically, and socially. During this time of rapid growth and change, students are given opportunities to extend their academic horizons, develop leadership abilities, and take great responsibility for their own lives.
The academic program in middle school is structured for the advanced study that facilitates success in high school and college. The middle school curriculum places a strong emphasis on language arts, mathematics, science, religion, and foreign language. Students also receive regular instruction in physical education. A variety of elective courses are offered. Through the counseling program, students interact with adult mentors and fellow students as they develop the social skills needed to work through the challenging middle and high school years.
As part of the spiritual formation, middle school students put their faith into action through service hours. Middle schoolers attend age appropriate retreats to deepen their faith and aid them in their walk with God. School-wide service projects help to teach that learning to give is an essential ingredient toward each child’s spiritual and educational growth.
