With the addition of 7th and 8th Grade, we are pleased to offer students a complete Jr. High experience. We have strategically implemented the Jr. High to create a special and unique experience for these students. We hope to build on the foundation established in earlier grades, while giving these older students more autonomy.
Our Jr. High students start the day with the rest of the school, but break away for their own Chapel, where guest speakers can bring more age appropriate lessons and messages.
Classes are offered in a block schedule, with a deep focus in the core subjects. Students are able to supplement their education through art and computer classes, as well as optional involvement in extra-curricular activities.
Athletics are an important option for kids in this age group – and we are so pleased to regularly add to our competitive athletic options! Involvement in these sports teach both team work and personal responsibility, while fostering a healthy sense of sportsmanship and competition. For the 2019-2020 school year, we plan to offer cross country, swimming, golf, girls volleyball, and boys basketball.
We also focus our enrichment activities to inspire these students to be civically engaged, build strong character, establish and reach for high goals, and remain biblically focused. Students have the opportunity to participate in community service projects, field trips, and mission trips.
Meet our Jr. High Teachers: Mrs. Lexi Blackburn, Mrs. Melissa Ritchey, Mrs. Angie McMorris, and Mrs. Stacy Tharp.
