Middle School

Middle School academics

We partner with parents to help our students successfully navigate the critically important Middle School years, assisting them to become assured young adults. We provide a robust academic program where rigorous math, English, history, and science courses challenge students. Choir, leadership, worship arts, photography, and other electives round out an engaging course catalog.

Students are immersed in an environment that helps them strengthen their relationship with Christ. Daily Bible classes, weekly chapels, and opportunities for servant leadership encourage students to make their faith their own. Middle School students grow as leaders by becoming class officers and taking part in service opportunities on campus and throughout our community. A variety of Middle School athletic programs allow students to develop leadership skills on the field of play as well as in the classroom.

Our faculty and staff are committed to fostering the academic and spiritual growth of every child. Teachers and students come together to form a safe, caring, and intentional Christian community where young people are known and valued.
