Westminster Christian Academy’s Middle School provides a positive and exciting school climate for students in grades seven and eight. Students enjoy a sense of community, cooperation and teamwork that is distinctive to middle school education. A focused effort to help students develop spiritual maturity, achieve personal excellence and learn effective study skills is built within this dynamic program.
The traditional academic disciplines anchor Westminster's middle school experience. Moreover, many other opportunities exist for students to grow and learn beyond these core classes. The rich experiences in the fine arts and the acquisition of essential practical arts skills bring beauty and resourcefulness into our students’ lives. The Middle School offers exploratory classes to broaden students’ horizons. These hands-on, interactive classes are practical extensions of our core curriculum.
The athletic/physical education program another distinct element of the middle school experience at Westminster. We believe that this age group must engage in formalized physical activity. The students’ physical growth and developmental needs require careful, daily attention. To achieve this end, we require each student to participate in either a physical education class or a team sport during each athletic season. Physical education classes and team sports are conducted during an extended 80-minute period within the school day.
Grade-level teaching teams meet daily for interdisciplinary planning and to review student progress and needs. Our middle school faculty and staff work together to create one unified and distinctly Christian middle school experience.
We encourage seventh and eighth grade students to begin developing habits such as self-discipline, responsibility and the ability to relate to others, all of which will prepare them for adulthood. Our middle school students plan and prepare for tests, quizzes, projects and daily homework as part of their daily routine. Their talents and character are stretched as they begin to develop into the Christian young men and women that God has planned for them to become.
