Junior High 6-8
Preparing Students for their Next Big Steps
Our Junior High is an exciting transitional period that prepares students both academically as well as socially for high school. In addition to academics, students are able to learn valuable life lessons from a biblical worldview and develop a solid foundation that helps them face the pressures of peers and society.
Junior High is a 1:1 program with chrome books. They will also receive assignments and homework through google classroom. Students get their own email account in Jr. High, and when they graduate from jr. high they are able to take their chrome books with them.
We run a modified block schedule Mon-Thurs which means students have 3 core classes a day in the morning for 75 minutes. The afternoon schedule is similar but with classes only being 45 minutes. On Fridays, Jr. High students will attend morning chapel and then have their core class for 45 minutes and usually have home room activities or STEAM projects in the afternoon. Afternoon classes include P.E., Band, Study Hall, Electives, Fine Arts, etc. Electives change each quarter and include subjects like art, leadership, computer science and health, newsletter/yearbook, speech and debate, and personal finance.
