Academics - Middle School
Our Middle School is a premier program in sixth through eighth grades, advancing traditional studies in all curriculum areas to prepare students for college preparatory course work. The curriculum has seven main components: English and Literature, Social Studies, Math, Science, Foreign Language, Fine Arts, and character education. Generally, each Middle School student takes a course in each of the disciplines above. Fine Arts options include band, chorus, physical education, technology, drama, art, and video production. A safe and nurturing environment enables academic success and provides support for healthy social and emotional development.
Our Middle Schoolers are encouraged to branch out and explore new areas of interest and participate in a variety of endeavors. The Middle School offers many challenging and enjoyable opportunities in outdoor education, creative arts, athletics, and student leadership.
Options in the fine arts program abound with band, vocal ensemble, visual arts, and drama. Our award-winning drama department provides opportunities for our Middle Schoolers to participate each year in a musical production.
Middle School students can often be found conducting art projects that connect literature and social studies, taking field trips that enrich math or science, or enjoying the cuisine of cultures connected to social studies or foreign language. Technology is playing an increasingly important role in the curriculum. Our students are exposed to a wide variety of media and trained to interpret them with a discerning eye. Our hands-on technological tools allow our students to expand their skills with real-life applications.
