Academics

 

Middle School 

 
The middle school years might be the most critical time in your child’s development.  As young people move toward greater independence, peer pressure becomes tremendous.  As they begin to make their faith their own, your children begin to question almost everything.  Imagine going through this period of development surrounded by a community of teachers and friends who share a love for Christ.


Liberty Christian School’s Middle School program provides sixth through eighth graders a strong academic program and a wide range of co-curricular activities designed to create leaders and encourage students to explore and ground their Christian faith.

“Academic content is important, but it’s equally important for our students to be able to filter what they’re learning through Biblical glasses and process it through a Christian perspective. It’s more than getting a worksheet completed and good scores on a test.  We are looking at the whole student; it’s teaching them to be Christian thinkers with a Christian worldview.” - Kara Mueller, Middle School Science Teacher
