Academics

Middle School

Middle School (grades 6-8) is designed to ease the transition from Elementary School. The college-preparatory curriculum paired with the Christian environment encourages students to develop integrity, respect, and responsibility. The students attend weekly chapel services where they focus on worshipping God, engaging with His Word, and participating in discipleship and service. The students' talents and interests are cultivated through challenging athletic activities, creative expression within a celebrated Fine Arts program, student clubs, and student leadership roles. The Middle School’s commitment, whether focused on academic pursuits, spiritual formation, or extracurricular participation, is ultimately grounded in a desire to develop young men and women of God who are prepared to positively impact the world around them.
School hours are from 8:05 a.m. to 3:20 p.m. Early stay is available at 7:30 a.m.

Meet the Middle School Principal

Dr. Bowers was born and raised in the Kansas City area. He graduated from Southwest Baptist University with a Bachelors Degree in Education and went on to receive his Masters in Christian School Education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and his Doctorate from Master’s International University. He has served the Lord faithfully in Christian education since 1997 as a teacher, coach, principal, head of school, and pastor.

Dr. Bowers and his wife, Erin, have two daughters, Ashlyn and Adyson. They enjoy spending time together as a family and going to the beach and Disney World. Dr. Bowers enjoys playing golf and tennis, and loves a good bowl of cereal or ice cream.
 
Dr. Bowers desires to see each student transformed into the image of Christ and therefore, wants to “labor until Christ is formed in you” (Galatians 4:19). He believes that is accomplished as “we proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man mature in Christ” (Colossians 1:28).
