Middle School

Middle School

Middle School is a time where students are very impressionable, and our desire is to guide them  to becoming the young person God has planned for them to become. We want to cultivate a passion for learning, help develop and affirm a strong sense of self-esteem, and foster spiritual growth so that our middle school students are being prepared for the great future that God promises in Jeremiah.
Middle School is a time where students are very impressionable, and our desire is to guide them to becoming the young person God has planned for them to become.
At Calvary, we believe middle school is a time when students should be exposed to a wide variety of programs and activities, encouraging them to take risks and explore their potential. We believe our smaller class sizes offer more opportunities to challenge our students academically and allow our faculty to take an individual interest in student success.

  • National Junior Honor Society

    As you begin the early stages of greater independence and responsibility as a middle school student, you may discover that you excel in your studies, have an interest in leadership and service, and have a thirst for challenge … and accomplishment.
    Membership in the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) may be an ideal fit for you! You can become a member through a local selection process that concludes with induction into the school’s National Junior Honor Society chapter.

    Through exclusive resources, programs, and services, members have a unique opportunity to prepare for their next steps in life. Membership truly lays the groundwork for lifelong success.
  • Student Leadership

    Middle School Student Council represents students in grades 6-8. The representatives present and organize community and school events for the student body, work to create a positive student environment as a liaison between students, teachers, and administration, and act as a voice for the student body when times call for change, improvement, and better solutions.
    The following roles are open for election each year:
    Student Council President - 8th grader
    Student Council Vice-President- 7th or 8th Grade

    Any student running for election in March must complete an application and complete the interview process for the following school year.  Any potential candidate must be a student who has attended Calvary for at least one full school year before being eligible to run for government.
  • Student Life

    Middle School Student Life offers many events for our students to become involved in, activities outside of the regular classroom setting in an environment where they get to know their peers and teachers on a more personal level. We offer events in the fall on campus, during Homecoming week, and even separate grade-level trips ranging from travel to Florida and Atlanta to Washington, DC or Boston. Sometimes our events are low-key, such as grade-level breakfasts, while others include a fun-filled afternoon in laser tag competition. Whether a new or returning student, we encourage you to become involved in these opportunities outside of the classroom. As teachers and administrators, we know that these special events each year make long-lasting memories for years to come.
