Middle School Experience

At CVCA, we place a premium value on the middle school years and view them as a trajectory for high school. Our faculty and staff are excited to join with students at this critical stage and engage, encourage, and point them to Christ on their journey. We have a uniquely intentional approach to the particular needs of middle school students and provide a safe environment where they can thrive academically, socially, physically, and spiritually. 

Beginnings...

At the start of each school year, CVCA middle school students participate in grade-specific retreats with their classmates. Each retreat provides students with the opportunity to meet new friends and teachers while engaging in action-packed activities. Programming varies by grade level, but each retreat includes team-building activities designed to bond their class. Students may participate in games, rope courses, kayaking, rock-climbing, zip lines, swimming, hiking, crafting, and other adventures. 

With scripture as the foundation, students are challenged to grow closer to the Lord and to one another during times of spiritual enrichment that include great music and messages from God’s Word.

Curriculum overview

Our middle school programming is designed to encourage students’ academic, spiritual, social, and physical growth during these critical years of development and transition. Dedicated middle school educators teach the core subjects of Bible, English, Math, Science, and Social Studies while preparing students for the demands of the college-prep program they will encounter at the high school level. Students also have the opportunity to learn and grow in the areas of World Language, Physical Education, Fine Arts, and Technology. 

There are eight academic periods in the schedule. Middle school students must enroll in at least seven classes each semester. One study hall is recommended to complete the schedule.

“The middle school experience at CVCA is life changing. Middle schoolers are developmentally ready to make their faith their own and CVCA’s middle school provides an incredible environment for students to grow spiritually.”
