We recognize that middle school is a time when much personal growth takes place as the independent learner emerges. During sixth through eighth grades, students are provided with steady guidance by supportive staff as they learn to meet greater expectations for self-reliance.

Nurturing Through Transition

Grades 6 - 8

The Middle School Difference allows students to:

  • Experience a rigorous and accelerated academic program that seeks to develop learners who consistently demonstrate competent literacy and writing, effective communication, and deep mathematical and scientific reasoning. 

  • Define and develop their own moral compass as they experience character education that focuses on teaching self-leadership skills and personal integrity through weekly, faculty-led advisory programs.

  • Thrive and work in a school culture led by teachers and staff who are sensitive to, aware of, and focused on the unique developmental, emotional, and spiritual needs of the middle school student.
