Middle School, which includes 6th through 8th grade, 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. Student 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.
Grades 6 through 12 begin at 8:05 a.m. and end at 3:20 p.m.
Early Stay is available and will begin at 7:30 a.m. (all grades)

Mr. Mason says, “What a blessing it is to work with young people who are a constant reminder of the excitement and growth they experience throughout their middle school years! Serving as the middle school dean is a rewarding opportunity to guide, support, and train young minds as they face developmental challenges. Being part of Christian education provides the essential biblical foundation for the spiritual formation and growth of young adults as we ‘train up a child in the way he should go’ (Deut. 22.6).”
