The middle school program serves as an important transition from elementary school to high school, where students experience profound changes in intellectual, physical, social, emotional and spiritual areas. These changes call for unique learning environments where students can mature, achieve success, and be challenged. Our middle school students are immersed in Catholic discipleship throughout the day. Our learner-centered curriculum provides stimulating opportunities to develop problem-solving and critical-thinking abilities. In a departmentalized environment, our middle school students are actively engaged in learning through the use of a variety of instructional methods and technologies, such as our one-to-one device program, that promote collaboration and higher-level thinking skills. Our small middle school environment provides opportunities for students to interact positively with peers and adults.
In addition to advanced math classes and high school credit classes, examples of electives that may be offered based on student interest include: music appreciation, choir, percussion ensemble, band, theater, art, foreign language, technology, broadcast, robotics, yearbook, service, health, cheer and dance, speech, stock market, debate, consumer science, newspaper.
