At Westminster Catawba Christian School, the Middle School faculty recognizes the challenges our students face during this time in their lives.
These students are transitioning from a school setting with more structure to a middle school schedule that offers more freedom yet requires more personal responsibility. In addition, to adjusting to more teachers each day, the students are changing classes, using a locker, and often engaging in more social activities and extra-curricular activities. Moreover, during the Middle School years, students begin to experience many physical, emotional and relational changes. Most importantly, it is often during the Middle School years that students begin to ask personal faith questions and begin to wrestle with understanding and ultimately owning their faith. For all of these reasons, the Middle School Faculty members of WCCS choose to teach Middle School. In this setting, we are able to easily teach to the whole child. Teachers set high standards for work completed for their classes; however, they set an equally high standard for those skills demanding emotional intelligence. Our teachers encourage students to address misunderstandings, conflicts, and advocating for oneself through the lens of the gospel. Helping students navigate these issues guided by the truth of Scripture, we are able to teach the whole child: intellectually, socially, emotionally and spiritually.
