Junior High

 Recognizing that grades six through eight are a unique transitional phase, our goal is to personally connect with and engage students spiritually, socially, emotionally and intellectually. High standards and a challenging, integrated curriculum provide students with the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to become critical thinkers, active citizens, and responsible leaders.

The junior high students:

  • grow spiritually to become leaders of their faith
  • prepare to receive the sacrament of Confirmation in seventh grade
  • learn vital organizational skills
  • identify global issues and realize the power of their voice
  • recognize and analyze mathematics in real-world situations
  • develop scientific inquiry through hands-on experiments in the science lab
  • create diverse, eloquent styles of writing
  • expand upon understanding through multimedia experiences in all subject areas
