Middle School

6th Grade

Growth & Confidence

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.

FAITH FORMATION

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.

ACADEMICS

In sixth-grade, our aim is to guide students in developing a deeper understanding of core academic disciplines, elective subjects, and their faith. Students explore various subjects, from STEM to fine arts, engaging in broad and captivating learning experiences that foster problem-solving skills, critical and creative thinking, collaboration, and perseverance. They delve into topics like ecosystems, communication methods, historical Bible figures, and musical performances. Group projects and hands-on learning are incorporated to challenge and inspire students’ minds and lives.

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.
