The middle school years are a time of excitement, growth, and questions. We attempt to ignite this spirit of inquiry that naturally resides in the hearts and minds of middle school-age students with a Socratic style of instruction. Students are engaged in their academic studies by teachers who are dedicated to the development of unique individuals each with their own diverse gifts and talents.
Middle school begins a serious program preparing the students for the rigors of high school. The Google Apps for Education program begins in sixth grade focusing on collaborative learning, electronic submission of work, and online research, all of which comprise vital college-preparatory skills. Campus-wide Wi-Fi provides the rich resource of the web and students are encouraged to have their own device available for in-class use.
Included in our academic program is an enrichment in Art, Spanish, Physical Education, retreats, a trip to Washington DC, and an invitation to participate in Student Leadership University. Middle school students participate in our weekly chapel program, led by the senior class, where servant leadership is modeled for our younger grades.
