MIDDLE SCHOOL

During the middle school years, Covenant Christian School promotes the development of the students academically, physically, creatively, and spiritually. CCS endeavors to challenge the students to become critical thinkers and life-long learners. Organized athletic teams encourage the development of their physical bodies. Creative talents are explored in more detail than in earlier grades. A stronger and growing relationship with Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, is of utmost importance and encouraged during these years.

 

Covenant Christian students learn the importance of living and sharing the Gospel by our mentoring program, chapel and community service opportunities. 

Letter from Our Administrator:

Covenant Christian School’s junior high students follow a comprehensive and challenging academic program. The curriculum includes Bible, Math, English, History, Science, Computer Applications, Music, and Physical Education.

 

Learning is not limited to the classroom. A variety of field trips and programs are planned to provide additional learning opportunities. Covenant’s own Outdoor Classroom is utilized regularly to enrich students' learning experiences. The seventh and eighth graders travel to Washington, DC for a week of learning about American history and government. Seventh and eighth grade students may participate in the Robotics program where students build and program their own robot. In 2014, Covenant students participated in a regional competition, winning the opportunity for statewide competition at Auburn University. Service projects are completed throughout the year. Monthly mentoring and school-wide service projects are viewed as a wonderful time for fellowship and building Christian character.

 

Covenant Christian School looks forward to providing a safe environment for your child to learn. Call or visit today! 

 

In His Service,
