Solidifying Their Identity
Middle School is a time of becoming. It is during the Middle School years that children solidify their identity and their understanding of reality. Our Middle School teachers craft an environment of acceptance where students feel a sense of belonging, where they develop self-confidence, self-awareness, and the vital disciplines of self-management and self-motivation. On the Middle School quest, students are encouraged to ask questions as they investigate the puzzles and mysteries of learning. This practice of inquiry leads students to master essential academic content and skills, develop moral and social sensitivities, and grow in virtue and spiritual vitality.
Prepared to Thrive
Our Middle School program is designed to build upon the foundational skills of reading, writing, and computation developed in Lower School, allowing our students to continue practicing and applying those skills. The subject area knowledge and application skills are further developed to prepare them to successfully enter our rigorous, college-preparatory High School.
The Middle School curriculum continues our intentionally interdisciplinary approach. We train our students to see connections between the various disciplines such as literature, history, art, science, and mathematics. And we show them how the ways of thinking in each discipline compare – how they are similar and how are they different.
Our classes integrate a Christian worldview throughout the program, exploring each subject from a biblical perspective of truth, knowledge and understanding. This worldview is brought to bear on the material, and students are challenged to apply it to a variety of disciplines and topics.
