CURRICULUM OVERVIEWAs students transition into our middle-school program, we begin to turn our focus to the organizational and time management skills that will help them be most successful as they move forward in their education.
LEARNING TO LIVE LIKE JESUSOver the course of a school year, our sixth-grade students will explore the life and ministry of Jesus. They’ll learn how Jesus’ lessons apply to their lives and how they can share them with their communities.
FOUR STRATEGIES FOR CHARACTER DEVELOPMENTCharacter development continues to be a priority and is accomplished through the following four structured methods: our honor and integrity code, our list of 72 virtues which are reviewed one by one, our motto “Speak Life,” and the study of the Fruits of the Spirit.
CURRICULUM OVERVIEWIn seventh grade our students learn to balance their academic learning with time management, organizational and interpersonal skills. Ultimately these skills and others help students to achieve our global goal of acquiring valuable critical thinking skills.
PRACTICE BEYOND MASTERYOur classroom environment helps students build confidence through the practice of public speaking, organizational, time management, and interpersonal skills.
ALWAYS STRIVING FOR EXCELLENCESt. Barnabas students work hard to strike a balance between striving for personal success and maintaining an environment of respect, courtesy, and integrity in and out of the classroom.
CURRICULUM OVERVIEWIn eighth grade our students are focused on developing the independence needed to thrive in high school. Throughout the year we measure student progress so that we can adjust our lessons appropriately.
CULTIVATING GOOD CHARACTERHelping students grow in character is as important to us as their academic growth. For that reason we implement a yearlong, multi-pronged approach to learning and living the spiritual and interpersonal values of our community.
ADVISORY SMALL GROUPSOnce per month eighth grade students participate in advisory groups which are designed to nurture their social and emotional development.
Each week we host a school community chapel service including a time of worship and a life-giving lesson that fosters students in their spiritual growth.
Our enrichment program offers students the opportunity to dive deeper into some of the subjects from their curriculum.
BUILDING CONFIDENCE INSIDE ALL OF US
