Middle School

Middle School is a time of constant change for students. CCS has built a middle school curriculum that recognizes the challenges at this stage of development for young teens. The main focus of the academic program at this level is to prepare students to be successful in high school. As a result, CCS offers an academically challenging middle school curriculum. In addition, organization, study skills, time management, and critical thinking are distinctive of every class and subject.

All middle school students at CCS take the daily core subjects of Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Bible. The Language Arts curriculum receives special attention at the middle school level because of the vital importance of writing and reading comprehension to all subjects, and especially to a student’s ability to succeed in high school. As a result, extra time is allotted within the middle school schedule for Language Arts. All middle school students will receive at least seven periods of teaching within the Language Arts classroom per week. In addition to the core subjects, students will take two to three hours per week of computer classes.

Middle school students will also take a different enrichment class each quarter. Students do not get to choose which enrichment courses they wish to take. The goal with these classes is to expose middle school students to a variety of classes so that they are better equipped to narrow their interest areas at the high school level. Please see the enrichment course descriptions for more detail.
