Faith. Mind. Heart.

During these important years, our program for grades 5 and 6 focuses on developing time management and decision making skills which applies to both academic and social situations and prepares them for their time in Middle School and Upper School. The curriculum is intentionally planned to help students grow in knowledge and apply that knowledge in stimulating and active experiences.

The Early Middle School program for grades 5-6 features advanced progression in math, reading, writing, and Latin, while maintaining arts intentionality in the curriculum and continuing our Shakespeare immersion program. Students learn the scientific method while performing hands-on experiments in a fully-equipped lab. Teachers who inspire depth are key to strengthening leadership competencies of our students by fostering problem solving, self-management, and interpersonal skills.

All the teachers make learning enjoyable and they are cultivating a passion in students to learn. That’s something they will carry with them for the rest of their lives."
