MIDDLE SCHOOL (grades 5-8)
Middle School Highlights
Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth grade students encounter Jesus daily through Scripture, prayer, and song. We are focused on growing in virtue and joining the movement to Unleash the Gospel in the Archdiocese of Detroit. We learn using a variety of resources, from textbooks to Chromebooks, attuning our senses, applying our intellect, and directing our imagination to all that is true, good, and beautiful. We are anchored in the wisdom of classical Catholic tradition while drawing from the best of contemporary practices in education.
Early in the year, Grades 5 and 6 attend the YMCA Camp Storer near Jackson, Michigan for one week of outdoor educational activities and classes. Not only do we learn a lot while having fun, but it helps us grow as a classroom community and is always a memorable experience.
