Tri-City Christian Academy’s Middle School
Middle school is the bridge between elementary and high school. Developmentally, early adolescence can be fraught with great change, anxiety, and uncertainty. Tri-City Christian Academy counters these tendencies by building a real community which not only fosters personal responsibility and independence, but also nurtures life-long connections rooted in God’s grace and love.
Middle school students continue learning core academic skills, and in addition learn study skills and develop habits necessary for more serious academic work in high school. At the same time, we recognize the unique needs of rapidly growing middle school students by offering a rich variety of related arts learning opportunities. All subjects are taught from a Christian perspective and help guide students in making ethical decisions.
Middle School is departmentalized, providing faculty who are teaching in their areas of expertise.
The middle school Science program spans a wide range of life, earth, and physical science. Each year students participate in a science fair. In English, students focus on literature, grammar, reading and writing. History exposes students to the world. Students are immersed in learning about American History as well as ancient cultures and countries. Our focus in Mathematics is to create a bridge to upper-level math. Our mathematics instruction ensures that students have a solid foundation in the skills they will need for high school and beyond. Latin language instruction is continued throughout middle school. Students attend Latin class twice per week. Latin is offered through high school.
Student autonomy increases as they move between classes on a seven-period schedule.
Discipleship & Service
Middle school students are given opportunities to serve the local Somersworth community and beyond. Fall clean-up is a favorite activity, singing at Rochester Manor, food drives, and service opportunities are given as part of discipleship and service experience.
