Middle School – Grades 6-8
Principal – David Patterson
Middle School is an exciting gateway to high school. During this time of mental and physical change, we endeavor to create a safe and nurturing experience where each child learns the immeasurable blessings of God’s grace and of being a valued member of the school community.
With Scripture as our guide, we partner with parents to help students grow spiritually, academically, physically and emotionally. The learning environment is lively, yet structured. The curriculum includes Bible, Math, English, American History, World History, Geography, Science, and Physical Education. In each academic content area, teachers employ meaningful learning opportunities that foster critical thinking, reasoning skills, and that engage each student in an academic experience that is both content rich and comprehensive in scope.
Beyond the Classroom
Our students enjoy many social, athletic, and service opportunities. A few annual highlights include our back-to-school party every August and our Winter Banquet in January, which will feature fellowship, food, and great entertainment with a casual flair. Throughout the year, our students will also enjoy a wide range of athletic programs, including volleyball, basketball, track, and cross country. Along with these and numerous other activities, our students are afforded several special opportunities to serve the Lord throughout our community. Every year we have a service day in which we will serve sister churches throughout Jacksonville, and work closely with an inner city ministry where the students will be blessed to serve meals, clean facilities, landscape grounds, and distribute food.
