Middle School

During these transformative years, we work to continue to
nurture the love of learning while also building self-esteem
and laying the ground for future success. This stage establishes time management, critical thinking, and problem solving
skills needed to lay a strong foundation for reaching personal
goal and achievements.  In middle school, students build
upon the skills learned in elementary school.

 

Middle school helps with the transition to high school as
students begin to tackle more challenging subjects and work to understand what will be expected of them in high school. In order to be prepared for and successful in upper level classes, middle school students are given the opportunity to take academically challenging classes. Doing well in these classes allows students to acquire the knowledge needed to be successful in high school. 

Curriculum


Materials used in our middle school have included: Analytical Grammar and Rod and Staff for grammar;
Saxon for math; Apologia for science and various sources for history, writing, and literature.

"We found out about how great NGA was a few years ago from a family friend.  It did not appear to be an option due to the distance and demands of work.  After praying we decided it was worth the investment.  It was by far the best decision we've ever made for our son's education.  It is the perfect balance of challenging curriculum, social interaction and actively involved instructors.  The commitment from all the families to ensure a protective, productive and caring environment for our kids.  I was a bit worried about the transition into 8th grade but it was seamless.  His experience here has been completely positive.  He's made what we hope to be lifelong friends.  We love the staff, the curriculum, and that he gets to be part of a Christ-centered environment.  Thank you, NGA, for making this such a special school."
