Student Life

The Middle School offers a caring environment coupled with a rigorous curriculum that is designed to provide the information, processes, and skills with which reflective decisions can be made.

In a nurturing and supportive atmosphere, our students begin to embrace learning as a life-long pursuit, to use inquiry as a means to discover and explore what truly inspires them - to use the print and digital resources available in a creative and progressive way, to grasp the importance of communication, both written and oral, to understand the necessity of attaining fluency in other modern languages, to explore the possibilities of extra-curricular activities, and to recognize that increased freedom and independence come with heightened responsibilities.

Middle School students meet on a daily basis with their homeroom teachers for morning prayer and any announcements for the day.  Each homeroom has two assigned teachers to care for students and monitor their overall school experience. Additionally, students meet with their homeroom for a whole class period three times a cycle; time devoted to meeting and caring for the social-emotional developmental needs of the students.

This includes discussing relationship concerns or issues that occur within the class and may also include how to organize one’s time and set goals for being successful in middle school.  This is also a time for bonding as a class and learning what it means to be part of a cooperative team; a team that is accountable to looking out for one another.  The homeroom for middle students represents a safe place to discuss the challenges of school and problem solve how to handle the day-to-day stresses that come along with adolescence.  We strongly believe in partnerships with parents for student success and foster that in our commitment to ongoing, formal and informal two-way communication.
