WELCOME TO JR HIGH

7th-8th Grade

Junior High is an exciting time of life! As students are experiencing rapid growth physically and socially, they are also being stretched to grow academically and spiritually. Students are challenged to apply their knowledge, to ask questions about their discoveries, and to look at every discipline and content area through the lens of Scripture. As students are encouraged to think deeply about a variety of issues in a safe and loving environment, a solid Biblical Worldview begins to emerge.

Academics in the Junior High emphasize the building of skills and study habits as well as knowledge of core subject areas. Preparing for the rigors of high school is stressed throughout the Junior High program and emphasis is place on the importance of daily independent effort in accomplishing successful learning.

Classes in Junior High transition from an elementary self-contained model to departmentalized with several teachers, allowing for specialization in the content areas. Core subjects include Bible, History, Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. Additional classes include physical education, health, Spanish, and electives with options in the fine and performing arts, literature, technology, and physical education.
