Middle School

Welcome to Middle School

Middle school is a critical time for students as they embark on a journey of self-discovery and skill-building, gaining independence along the way.

Our dedicated teachers and staff are passionate about building relationships with students and meeting them where they are. We place special emphasis on moral education and guiding students to develop a deep understanding of their place in God's story unfolding here on earth. This creates an unparalleled environment for middle school students to thrive and grow.

A Letter from the Middle School Principal

Jesus Christ remains at the center of all that we do. Departments focus on the integration of God’s word in each academic course and co-curricular activity. We treat each student as if this year is the one year that we have them; therefore, we attempt to make a significant impact on your child for the time that God has allowed us.

The mission of the Social Studies Department is to equip students, through critical thinking, challenging assessments, and respectful discourse, to participate in God’s global mission to love and serve the world.

God began by making one person, and from Him came all the different people who live everywhere in the world. God decided exactly when and where they must live. God wanted them to look for Him and perhaps search all around for Him and find Him, though He is not far from any of us: ‘We live in Him. We walk in Him. We are in Him’…‘For we are His children.’ Acts 17:25-28

God loves all of humanity, no matter the race, nation, language, or culture, and wants all people to be reconciled to Him.

The mission of Athletics is to advance the Kingdom by glorifying God through sport and competition. We feel that when athletics is kept in the right perspective, our student-athletes are allowed to develop without fear of failure and push to reach their full potential.
