Middle School

Grace Covenant Academy Grades 6-8

Middle School | Grades 6-8

Middle school is a life-stage marked by change. As they grow from childhood into adolescents, we want to ensure that our students understand the gospel and begin seeing things through a biblical worldview. At this stage of life, we want to begin teaching them how to engage culture and live life for the glory of God.

Schedule:

At Grace Covenant Academy, our middle school (grades 6-8) meets Monday, Tuesday,  and Thursday each week for active classes that engage students and teach them how to think critically and in light of the gospel. Students work on teacher-prescribed lessons at home on Wednesdays and Fridays. We find this model to be an effective way of teaching core subject lessons and delegating leadership and parental responsibilities to you.

Our Promise: Small Class Sizes

The maximum class size for each middle school grade is 20 students.
