Christian Middle School – 6th, 7th, 8th grade

The middle school years are a time of transition.  The transition is to advance from being led and told what and how to learn to learn how they learn. It is becoming an independent and responsible Christian of the community.  This is the time of ownership and any mistakes that happen during this time period will help them from making larger mistakes in high school and beyond.  A Christian middle school student is developing an understanding of whom the Lord wants them to be.  These are important years and a time to build their faith as they build their education that honors the Lord’s plan for them.  

 

Academically, attention is dedicated to continue to focus on strengthening foundations and prepare for high school, college and career.  The students that are prepared will advance to a higher honors level.  We look at the whole student, not just grades and test scores.  We have often found that a student with a desire to be in honors-level classes can succeed and become a great leader within the class.  We want everyone that has the desire to work academically to their highest ability. The same would hold true if a student has struggled in the past and needs additional help.  We want students to have all the tools that they need to succeed.  Again, students are placed where they are and by discussing goals with parents often.
