Middle School

Our Middle School is the bridge between elementary and high school. Here, students continue learning basic skills and in addition learn study skills and habits necessary for serious academic work in high school. The Middle School program is departmentalized, providing instructors who are teaching in their areas of expertise. At the same time, we recognize the unique needs of rapidly growing middle school students by offering a rich variety of academic and practical learning opportunities during daily “activity periods.” Conscious of the spiritual capacity of middle school students, all subjects are taught from a Christian perspective and help students make ethical decisions.
