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.
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.
Faith Baptist Schools offers a Christ-centered, classical, college preparatory curriculum. The curriculum is taught from a biblical worldview and is enriched by a classical emphasis. All that is taught in the classroom, reinforced in athletics, and modeled by the faculty aims to further a student’s apprenticeship to Jesus Christ. The curriculum is designed to further the discipleship of mind and heart.
The curriculum is especially designed to prepare students for college. The PSAT is taken in the ninth, tenth and eleventh grades. The eleventh grade scores are used to determine National Merit Scholarships, which can contribute greatly to college options and scholarships. The eleventh grade is the single most important year for college placement, and is often the most difficult. During the senior year the greatest number of Advanced Placement courses may be taken.
