Middle School Program

 

 

"Education gives our children a foundation for life. They are our future explorers and creators, innovators and leaders, neighbors and parents."

 

A Foundation for Life

 

Active Learning

 

Individual Attention

Divine Savior Academy's middle school students are engaged in a dynamic curriculum that appeals to all types of learners. As an extension of our elementary program, the middle school curriculum continues to support our students by providing excellence in education in all areas of development: physical, spiritual, social, emotional, and academic development.

 

In middle school, students learn in a departmentalized setting and rotate from class to class in order to learn from specialized teachers in their course schedule. A variety of teaching approaches including active learning, the use of technology, and STEM-focused (Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics) lessons prepare our students for college, careers, and life in an ever-changing world.

 

At Divine Savior, we value each child as a unique individual and seek to meet every child's needs. Our teachers work to develop lessons, establish relationships, and create an environment where our students enjoy learning and are able to succeed. Small class sizes, low teacher-student ratios, and a family environment support our goal of providing individual attention to all our students.

The Middle School Experience

The middle school years are important in the development of a child. For this reason, we make it a priority to focus on building self-esteem and developing opportunities for teamwork and collaboration inside and outside the classroom. The goal is for all our students to become leaders and active citizens in their communities. To this end, leadership qualities are taught in our classrooms, and active citizenship is encouraged and practiced throughout the year. Some events that promote these qualities include a college and career day, personal finance instruction, an overnight team-building retreat, and leadership programs.

We are a community of families, students, educators, and friends who are dedicated to working together to help our children thrive. That's why we call ourselves "The Divine Savior Family."
