In their transition to the 上学校, young men and women discover that freedom and responsibility go hand-in-hand. 中学 students are asked what kind of person they intend to become: What will motivate their decisions and choices? How will they use their 能源 and resources for the good of others? How will they develop the habits of their hearts and why?
In addition to growing academically, Covenant’s middle schoolers have many opportunities to build relationships and mature socially. Grade-level trips to Baltimore and Washington, D.C., and an Eighth Grade dessert and dance with parents build connections during these formative years. Students’ emerging gifts and leadership skills are displayed during the annual Science Fair, 拼字比赛, and 艺术 performances.
中学 faculty, gifted in teaching adolescents, provide an appropriate level of support, 鼓励, 和宣传.
