We strive to learn from God’s creation in all area’s of study and to do all for the Glory of God. It is our goal that every student would grasp our yearly objectives and be ready for the next big step in their lives.

Science: Units covered include: Invertebrates and Insect Collection, Trees and Plants, Geology, Introduction into Chemistry and Astronomy. Hands-on labs.
Bible: The life of Christ and the book of Acts.
Reading: Accelerated Reader, novels, short stories, and poems. Focus on genre and the elements of a story.
The Sixth graders have the opportunity to be involved in Cross Country, Basketball and Pep Squad. Annually we hold a Junior High Olympics that sixth graders can participate in. The sixth grade takes a few major field trips such as the “Tour of Crawford County”, the Cave Trip at southern Indiana, and Space Camp (every 5 years). In addition they take small local field trips throughout the year.
