About Our Upper Elementary and Middle School Program

Our Middle School is the bridge between elementary and high school. Here, 4th and 5th grade students continue in an upper elementary model. The upper elementary program is characterized by an integrated Humanities program and Science & Math experience in 4th and 5th grade. Sixth grade students are offered an experiential learning opportunity with hands on experiences heavily integrated throughout the curriculum. Seventh and 8th grade have a departmentalized structure, 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. Conscious of the spiritual capacity of middle school students, all subjects are taught from a Christian perspective and help students make decisions informed by a biblical worldview.
