Middle School

Distinctive Features

List of 11 items.

  • Advisory Program

    The goal of the Middle School advisory program is three-fold: to equip students with the critical character qualities they need to be successful, to provide the opportunity for students to develop a trusting relationship with faculty members, and to foster an environment of mutual respect in the Middle School. The WiseSkills curriculum is used in advisory groups for character development. WiseSkills focuses on using character themes such as having a positive attitude and being respectful to help students develop wisdom, which is defined as, “making good choices for yourself and others.” Students meet once a week in small advisory groups for discussion of these themes. Guest speakers occasionally share with students how character has played a role in their careers.

On Wednesdays and Thursdays, classes are 80 minutes in length and spread over the two days. The weekly Eucharist service and Advisory period also take place on Wednesdays.
  • Project Empathy

    Project Empathy is a community service project for the entire Middle School focusing on homelessness. The project is designed to help students better empathize with the homeless and see that the students’ efforts make a difference in our community. Students research various homelessness issues and are provided opportunities to serve the homeless and learn how to be advocates in the future. The project culminates with an overnight homeless simulation on campus.

    The RANGE is an 16-acre natural area on campus that includes a wetland, native grassland, garden and orchard, students learn in an outdoor classroom. This natural setting provides service opportunities, conservation awareness and enhancement of scientific instruction and writing experiences.
  • Roundtable

    In the Middle School, every student is invited to join all of his or her teachers for a “roundtable” discussion once or twice each year. In these meetings, faculty members share with students their observations about their positive qualities, specific areas in which they may improve, and goal-setting strategies. Students come away from the experience with the assurance that not only do their teachers know them as individuals, but that they truly care about their success.
  • Special Events

    The Middle School Student Council sponsors two dances, a powder puff football game and an occasional movie night held on campus. Students can also participate in a chili-cook off in coordination with Western Day in January. 
  • Spirit Days

    The Middle School, otherwise known as the “Kingdom of Fun,” takes advantage of the tight-knit community to celebrate each other. From Flip-Flop Fridays to game days, students have many opportunities to show their spirit.
  • Travel Opportunities
