Our Program

Our classes (except foreign language) are taught in English, and we use an American-style program that addresses the whole person, is Biblically based, recognizes all truth is God’s truth, emphasizes sharing the Gospel and discipleship, and encourages Biblical thinking and living.

Our middle school program includes Bible, core academics, exploratories (art, computer applications, Japanese language, music, woodshop), and activities:

  • Year-round activities: servant leadership council, chapel, homeroom
  • Fall activities: school-start social, camp, walkathon, for 8th graders: girls’ cross-country and volleyball / boys’ cross-country
  • Winter activities: science fair, banquet, spirit week, service week, for 8th graders: girls’ basketball and cheerleading / boys’ basketball
  • Spring activities: 8th grade trip, for 8th graders: girls’ soccer and track / boys’ soccer and track, athletic banquet


We post grades online, send home report cards, e-mail a newsletter each month, and have conferences twice a year. We can be contacted by phone or e-mail.
