The middle school at Charlotte Christian offers young adolescents an academically rigorous, developmentally appropriate curriculum in a safe, nurturing, Christ-centered community. The middle school encourages students to grow academically, spiritually, emotionally, and socially. Growth is fostered at every level as our faculty and program actively seek to develop habits and attitudes that make our students future-ready. As students grow in their understanding and experiences, lifelong learning skills, interpersonal relationship skills, a biblical worldview, and their individual approaches to learning receive emphasis.
The middle school years are a period of development for independence, self-concept, maturity and self-confidence. These years are filled with energy and excitement balanced by a teacher-led advisory group and chapel, addressing issues important to adolescents. This contact helps students with values, attitudes, habits of learning, peer and family relationships, and the development of Christ-like character.
Middle School Houses
Six houses, one family. Middle school at Charlotte Christian has a unique identity. Our house system sorts students into one of six groups that meet routinely throughout the year. Through various activities, games and team building, students find their voice and leadership potential within their house and the entire middle school community. It is well documented that play and pro-social opportunities are an important part of the development of the middle school student, and our house system gives both students and teachers an opportunity for fun and relationship building. Our goal is for every student to leave us having a deeper understanding of their identity in Christ and a sense of belonging within our community.
FINE ARTS OPPORTUNITIES
Students in grades 6-8 perform a co-curricular mainstage musical each fall. Previous shows include The Lion King, Jr., Mary Poppins, Jr., Annie, Jr., The Best Christmas Pageant Ever Musical, and this year’s production of James and the Giant Peach, Jr. Students also have the opportunity to audition for the competition ACT 2 drama team.
Middle school is an important time for students to explore their strengths and interests. To do that effectively, students need exposure to many different topics and activities, especially those that intersect with real-world issues. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math, and these courses develop students who are problem solvers, innovators, inventors, and logical thinkers. The curriculum helps students to connect what they learn in different classes and explore engineering, technology, and medical applications. STEM courses that have been offered include engineering, advanced engineering, 3D design and modeling, genius hour, robotics, forensic science, midKnight innovation, creative media, and digital music.
