Middle School

Our middle school curriculum is dedicated to the continual pursuit of excellence in academics while providing a bridge between elementary and high school teaching approaches. We teach our scholars to be self-directed, active learners, and to identify their teachers as engaged facilitators.

Our comprehensive academic program strives to provide a challenging curriculum to benefit all learners within the classroom setting. During this transitional period for our scholars, we emphasize and celebrate their identity in Christ while sharpening their minds and talents.
