Our 6th through 8th grades are departmentalized by subject. This allows our teachers to focus on sharing the subjects they are most passionate about.
Departmentalization also increases the attentiveness of students and prepares them for higher education.
Encouraged to serve
From field trips to being in God's Word daily in class, our students are reminded of God's love and encouraged to see how their unique and varied gifts can be used to serve their Savior.
Taught to lead
Our 7th and 8th graders are given opportunities to grow in their leadership potential. They are trained to help our younger students with reading, lead "Cardinal Families," and are positive role models for the rest of the school.
While our 7th and 8th graders work and learn hard, they also have a great time with each other and the rest of their school family.
Students use collaborative activities to help each of them achieve success, as we know success looks different for different students.
