As they acquire new skills and knowledge, students in Grades 6-8 grade are challenged academically and intentionally discipled to encourage personal growth and maturity in their relationship with Jesus Christ and with others.
Our school day includes language arts, social studies, mathematics, science, Bible, physical education and various exploratories, such as arts and technology. Middle school students are trained and called to lead in both worship and service to others, as they participate in weekly chapels and serving opportunities.
Parents are key partners in helping students understand, appreciate and wrestle with the physical, intellectual, emotional and social changes that occur during these years. We believe in guiding students through this time in their lives by challenging them to seek biblical answers and choices.
Middle School Awards & Qualifications
“Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:8
At Christian Heritage Academy it is our greatest desire that whatever we do, whether in word or deed, that we do it all for the glory of God. Additionally, we recognize that “all that we have accomplished…You have done for us” (Isaiah 26:12). Thus, at the end of each school year, we recognize and give thanks to God for excellent works that have been accomplished by our students in the areas of academics and character development.
