Bible classes are offered 5 days per week. One Bible teacher is in charge of the entire Middle School program and is able to maintain a unified focus as the students progress through middle school. A yearly theme is emphasized with all classes, along with the curriculum that centers on “Redemption” in sixth grade, “Life of Christ” in seventh, and “Old Testament themes” in eighth grade.
In sixth grade the focus is on the fundamentals of math and the teacher will make evaluations in the course of the year to aid in giving recommendations for math placement in seventh grade. In seventh and eighth grades students are placed into Pre-Algebra and Algebra I based on motivation, maturity, and ability.
Science is the study of our physical and natural world through observation and experimentation. Although, scientifically speaking, neither creation nor evolution were observed by man; we will evaluate evidence that is available to show that creation is a far better explanation of the origin of man and the universe in which we live.
