The first year in middle school is exciting! From more varied class options to individual Chromebooks and school athletic teams, students in 6th grade enjoy new social freedoms and academic opportunities in a safe environment. Our students think more deeply about Scripture and how God is at work in their own lives. Serving is a big part of this year as students regularly volunteer at local ministries. We do all this to build confidence and inspire students to grow in their knowledge and pursuit of Christ.
Growth & Confidence
The Bible is the lens through which we look at everything at HCS. It weaves throughout our 6th grade curriculum, and worship and prayer are daily class activities. Nurturing a delight in studying the Bible and sharing about their faith is paramount for our Christian faith. 6th grade students attend and occasionally lead at our weekly Chapels and discuss their learning with their teachers and classmates. In addition, 6th grade students contribute to their Faith Portfolio and complete a grade-specific Faith Capstone activity each year.
Academic Core Subjects
Advanced Learning & Educational Support Services
Advanced English Language Arts and Math programs are available for 6th-grade students that qualify. These classes give selected students the chance to work beyond grade level so that they may continue to be engaged academically and offer their unique gifts to the body of Christ.
At the Middle School, the HCS Educational Support Services team provides assistance for 6th-grade students with specific learning needs while promoting spiritual, social and academic growth of all students. We offer a variety of support for students with learning disabilities, cognitive impairments, emotional impairments, autistic spectrum disorder, attention dysfunctions and anxiety dysfunctions.
