Grades 6 through 8
CA Middle School provides students in grades 6 through 8 with a nurturing environment in which to pursue personal growth as well as academic excellence. Here, students begin to shape personal values and develop respect and responsibility for themselves, for others, and for their environment. We recognize that to feel valued and accepted is to feel safe, and that this is the foundation of tolerance and the ability to see the world from another’s point of view. This distinguishes CA's Middle School from the traditional junior high school model.
Supported by their school and community, Middle School students learn how to study and think independently as they prepare for secondary education. They acquire, demonstrate, and celebrate talents in the classroom, in artistic, musical, or dramatic endeavors, and on the athletic field. They also develop intellectual curiosity, discover the joy of learning, and take pride in their achievements.
A Rigorous Liberal Arts and Sciences Curriculum
Middle School incorporates a rigorous liberal arts and sciences curriculum with service learning and experiential education opportunities, as well as a structured advising program designed to promote both academic and personal growth.
