Middle School

ACADEMICS

We provide a an engaging, Christ-centered learning environment, and view every student as part of our family. 

In middle school, we focus on making sure students are relational Christ-centered while we guide them through their educational journey.

A Simple Equation

Academic Rigor + Skill Building x Character Traits = Middle School

One of our responsibilities is to equip students with social skills and constantly be focused on learning opportunities as it relates to their character. Some of these skills we hold in high regard are honesty, accountability, respect, responsibility, and thankfulness. Most, if not all, of the character traits we foster have Biblical roots and therefore Chapel serves as a great medium for teaching this. Ultimately, our staff is expected to (and they do!) model these traits for our students.

Electives: Unique options

Middle school students have a lot of exciting electives to choose from: Theater, Band, Choir, P.E., STEAM, Leadership, Creative Writing, Journalism, Introduction to Language & Culture, and Art. 

In a culture where most schools are minimizing these options, we are growing and expanding ours.

OBjective: Faith for Life

Above all else, we desire your child to have a relationship with the Lord that impacts the way they approach every area of their lives (academics, arts, athletics, etc). We believe our culture and our staff provide a foundation for your child to reach their full potential in the Lord and prepare them for the rest of their lives.

Kindness counts

We consistently work to promote and model positive, kind behavior. We encourage any bystander to not be silent and to stand up and support their peers verbally. In addition, we encourage anyone who feels they are not being treated well to inform a teacher or administrator.

FRESH LUNCH MADE DAILY

We have one of the best chefs in the state, Chef McCaulley, who prepares fresh lunch daily onsite in our professional grade kitchen. He and his team take great pride in preparing food that is made from scratch and uses fresh ingredients; you’ll be surprised what your Middle Schooler is willing to eat!
