5th - 8th Grade
Middle School is a time of spectacular growth and change. At St. Benedict’s, we design our Middle School around the characteristics and needs of our students. Our faculty respect adolescents’ emerging identities and changing interests, and work as a team to support our students as they navigate these new experiences. We guide our students to make good choices, take on more responsibility, persevere and embrace their journey.
Our Middle School environment fosters creativity, resilience, and self-efficacy.
Our academic program immerses students in coursework that inspires them to think critically, problem solve, and collaborate as global citizens. Academic disciplines in the Middle School are organized by both department and grade level. Our innovative curriculum exceeds state and national standards and prioritizes mastery of skills. By the time students leave Middle School, they are expected to not only have mastered the learning outcomes identified in each academic discipline, but also be confident and capable students in time management, organization, note-taking, and study skills. By modeling empathy and cultivating life skills, we encourage our students to be good citizens, engaged in the world around them and mindful of the experiences and needs of others.
