Junior high is an ever-changing, exciting, and challenging time. Young teens are dealing with many changes emotionally, physically, and socially. It is our goal to provide a safe, secure, and encouraging environment where students grow in their independence and develop academically, socially, and spiritually as they prepare for high school.
The 7th and 8th grade core subjects include Bible, history, language arts, math, physical education, and science. In addition, our students can choose from an array of elective courses including art, band, chorus, drama, foreign language, orchestra, and robotics.
The junior high experience is enhanced with a number of activities including athletics, fine arts, honor societies, academic team, mission trips, and student government.
