Middle School Curriculum Emphasis
All Middle School Grade Levels:
Students build knowledge about biblical principles by studying the Bible in a Bible class which meets daily.
The curriculum, which teaches reading, writing, language, and speaking/listening skills, focuses on preparing students with the ability to meet the growing complexity of texts they must read to be ready for the demands of college and careers.
Students engage in regular practice with complex text and academic language. They are expected to read, write, and speak grounded in evidence from text, both literary and informational. They will be expected to answer questions that depend on their having read the text, write through sequence and detail, and speak with command of comprehension.
The curriculum is designed to build on prior knowledge and experiences and build strong conceptual foundations in all aspects of mathematics.
Mathematic rigor connects the need for students to be proficient in conceptual understanding, procedural skill, fluency, and application of mathematical concepts.
In middle school, mathematical concepts build on past knowledge and spiral to include ratios and proportional relationships, early expressions, equations, arithmetic of rational numbers, linear algebra, and linear functions.
The curriculum for 6th grade is centered on ancient civilizations. Students come to understand the past through investigation of these civilizations: Mesopotamia, Egypt, Israel, India, China, Greece, Rome, Mayas, Africa, Byzantine Empire, and the Middle Ages.
The curriculum for sixth grade covers general concepts in earth, life, and physical science. The presentation is through a creationist theory supported by the Bible instead of an evolutionary explanation through a “Big Bang Theory” of how the earth formed and life began.
The curriculum for seventh grade is centered on World Studies. Students are introduced to historical foundations from Creation to the present. Subject areas include events from creation to the rise of Islam (Creation-800); changes and development of cultures of the world (1000-1650); dominant powers of Europe and Asia (1450-1750); the revolutionary age (1750-1900); the 20th century and beyond (1900-present).
The curriculum for seventh grade covers life science. Students explore the meaning of science and how to think like scientists. They learn to “think Christianly about thinking scientifically”. Topics include: studying life science and what scientists do; classifying living things; living organisms and the function and structure of cells; heredity and the origin of life; concepts in microbiology and plant biology; concepts in the animal kingdom; the nature of the environment; the structure and function of the human body.
The curriculum for eighth grade is centered on American History. Students are introduced to events leading to the development of America. Subject areas include learning about geography; settling a wilderness; establishing a nation; growth of our nation and government; changes in American life; the crisis of war; industrialism; expansion; and preparing for life in our current 21st century including advancements in technology.
The curriculum for eighth grade covers earth and space science. Students begin by exploring the Christian worldview as it relates to science. Topics include: the earth’s motions; the study of the stars, sun, moon, and space exploration; the atmosphere: the study of meteorology, atmospheric water and movement, and weather predictions; the lithosphere: the study of geology, minerals and ores, rocks/fossils, earthquakes and volcanoes; the hydrosphere: the study of oceans, seas, glaciers, and the groundwater system.
