Middle school serves as the transition from childhood to young adulthood. Forming the heart, soul, mind, and body of a child is the heart of the middle school years. There should be no separation between the intellectual and spiritual development of a child, so we teach for the purpose of soul formation, understanding that all things, including mathematics, science, art, literature, history, and physical education come under the Lordship of Christ. Soul formation requires discipline and training in virtue–the daily work of focusing our affections away from the things of the world toward Christ-likeness in all aspects of our lives.
During these years, students now have the maturity to use the large body of knowledge they possess and are ready to form conclusions and express themselves with eloquence and confidence. Students are taught to communicate their judgments based on facts, research, and earlier connections. They can articulate their arguments in writing and public speaking, enabling them to take their place as scholars and citizens.
