Middle School Curriculum: Grades 4 to 6

SsJA’s Middle School Program consists of key transitional years that not only prepare the students academically, but also provide them with the organizational, study and note-taking skills that will enable them to become independent and responsible for themselves as they eventually move into the Jr. High. While clearly academically focused, this preparation is as equally rooted in the six core values of goodness, faith, excellence, integrity, community and service to develop strong character that will help students to make the best possible choices as they learn to navigate through life.

Our dynamic curriculum of Integrated Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Religion, Spanish, and Social Studies, are designed to inspire and challenge each and every student. Teachers work in collaborative teams to provide an integrated approach to learning. Students learn in a differentiated environment where authentic learning is critical to the instructional approach.

At the same time, the program is highly personalized and support services are available, so that each child progresses at a pace appropriate to his developmental readiness. The Middle School years are a delicate balance of providing nurturing support and guidance to students encouraging them towards their independence and taking responsibility for themselves and their actions, socially and emotionally.
