English
Grammar and Composition
Written and spoken language is the most powerful way of communicating in this highly complex world of technology. Words continue to have power and today’s style of communication in many instances requires participants to select fewer, but yet clearer words in their communication. Students will increase their skills as they broaden their command of language in all of their communication.

 

Literature
The study of literature will provide the opportunity to engage other people, times, and events as the students broaden their perspectives. Reading from a Christian point of view will strengthen their faith and challenge their intellect. Learning from great writers of the past will offer inspiration to explore this world of language style.

 

Mathematics
Students will have the option of two math courses in seventh grade. Placement is based on current math grades, standardized test scores, and teacher recommendations.
