Middle School

Middle School lays a strong foundation for our students' high school careers, both as learners and as citizens of a broader community. Students in grades 6-8 complete a sequence of rigorous core courses and are encouraged to take part in leadership training through organizations like Student Council, Honor Council and National Junior Honor Society. They may also participate in a range of seasonal sports and extra-curricular activities: Co-ed Soccer; Girls Baksetball, Softball, Volleyball; Boys Basketball; Student Choir; Yearbook; Cheerleading; Private Piano & Guitar Lessons; and more!

Middle School Advisory

Our Middle Schoolers are assigned to an Advisory group and spend some time getting to know each other, our weekly advisory period settles into a comfortable routine. We begin the three year journey that includes a mixture of character education, discussion of real life young adolescent issues, game playing, laid back conversations about our weekend activities, contests, art projects, service learning projects and more. Every Advisor knows their advisee’s strengths and weaknesses. We watch in amazement as students miraculously transform themselves from physically small, obviously awkward and nervous individuals, into much taller, totally comfortable, strong leaders who have found their place in Middle School. Memories are made, relationships are formed, and life lessons are instilled. Amidst the chaos that can be Middle School, Advisory is an oasis, where everyone can just be!

Choices

Grade 8 students discuss and navigate through the choices that will be in front of them in High School and beyond. Students will hear from law enforcement, drug and alcohol experts and leaders in our community about the choices that they will need to make to become the best of who they are Dr. Larry Micheletti leads this class.
