Middle School

Academics – Middle School (grades 6-8) 

Overview

Liberty Christian Academy Middle School includes grades 6-8.

Strong emphasis is placed on good study habits and encouraging a disciplined approach to the pursuit of knowledge.  Classes offered at the middle school level prepare students for LCA’s college prep high school classes while still enjoying the fun of middle school.

Our challenging academic program meets and exceeds state standards.  On state standardized tests, LCA middle school students typically test several grade levels higher than their public school peers.

Curriculum

Liberty Christian Academy uses the BJU Press curriculum in preschool through high school. The Christian worldview can be seen in all materials, encouraging the students to think about the world the way God does.

6th grade – This is seen as a transition year from elementary school to middle school.  Students gain experience following a bell schedule as they have the opportunity to change classes several times during the day.  Students also have their own locker.

7th and 8th grade
With 7th and 8th grade students changing classes over an eight-period day, teachers approach each class understanding the fundamental differences between middle school and elementary or high school students.  Instruction in skills of note taking, organization, and research are presented early and implemented throughout the middle school years.
