In addition to a rigorous academic curriculum, our Middle School places a strong emphasis on building a sense of community and encouraging students to deepen their faith in a supportive atmosphere.

Research-Based Approach

Understanding the role of metacognition, the awareness and understanding of one’s own thought processes, plays a crucial role in the development of adolescents.

Additional focus on developing executive skills helps our middle school students succeed in high school and beyond. Developing organizational and time-management skills are key areas of development in our Middle School.

Caring Teachers

Christian Foundations

As a Christian school, we teach Biblical truths that form the foundation of each student’s character. In the middle school years, students are asking big questions of themselves and others. Questions like, “Who am I?” “Who should I model?” and “What’s my identity?” We walk with our students through all of their questions and help them discover and maximize their God-given potential.
