Middle School Overview Grades 6 – 8
Our Christian Middle School presents opportunities for our students to grow academically, spiritually, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Leadership skills are emphasized throughout the year. Eighth graders, assisted by other Middle School members and our faculty build teams that are composed of K-8 students. These “Tribes” will work together in small groups to grow and encourage one another spiritually, physically and emotionally as they participate in Tribe Chapels, Field Days, mission projects and other such activities during the year.
By blending rigorous academic goals through the philosophies of Classical Education, Charlotte Mason and Outdoor Education, our fully accredited teaching professionals create a strong learning environment for tomorrow’s future leaders as they explore God’s world in the context of a Biblical worldview.
