As with our younger grades, school children in sixth through eighth grade also partake in daily mass. Classes are then resumed with similar core classes such as math, religion, reading, science, computer, social studies but are taught in rotation style with a mixture of four ‘middle school’ teachers. This prepares the kids for life ahead at a larger high school in tandem with expecting larger degrees of personal responsibility.
Students in grades 5-8 are eligible for Academic Honors. Each semester, grades from Religion, English, Math, Reading, Science, Social Studies, and Electives are averaged. Students with an average of 94% – 100% are placed on the Principal’s List; students with an average of 88% – 93% are placed on the Honor Roll.
It is our ultimate goal to prepare our kids and set them up for success while inspiring and leading them to grow in holiness.
