Concordia’s Middle School program serves grades six to eight and is purposefully designed to care for the unique needs of students as they grow and learn through this special time of development.
Through meaningful relationships and intentional communities at each grade level, our teachers provide inspiring and relevant hands-on learning that expands student choice and grows independence and responsibility in order to meet the needs of every student so they can thrive in our diverse and complex world.
Inspiring & Relevant Learning
We focus on holistic learning that is hands-on, connects to China, and grows both the academic and spiritual side of each student.
Thriving in a Diverse & Complex World
Students depart the Middle School better equipped with the relevant 21st Century skills to thrive in high school and beyond.
Supporting Every Student
Through differentiated instruction and assessment practices, individualized support, as well as robust Learning Support and English Language Learner programs, our teachers aim to meet every student at his or her level.
Expanding Student Choice
Middle School students choose from diverse elective offerings, music at each grade level, and a wide variety of co-curricular activities.
When students have choice their interest and commitment grow too.
Relationships in the Middle School are grounded on layers of community, including daily advisory, careful student placement, and grade-level teams so teachers can collaborate and build community.
Growth and Development in a Safe Environment
Because this is a unique period of intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth, the members of our Middle School faculty work in partnership with parents to create a school community that is supportive and responsive to the unique needs of the middle school student, helping to ensure that each student experiences challenge and success.
Within a supportive and positive environment, students are encouraged to explore leadership through increased social and personal responsibilities, including the appropriate use of technology.
Middle School students are presented with greater expectations for independence in their academic and co-curricular pursuits.
Learning in Middle School
Academics in Middle School progressively build upon the knowledge students acquired in elementary school and prepare them for the rigor and pace of high school.
Students explore a greater number of courses and co-curricular activities, expanding their fundamental body of knowledge and the skills necessary for deeper interpretation and real-world application.
