6th - 8th Grade
Students at this level are undergoing physical, emotional and intellectual growth. These years are critical is setting the foundation for later grade levels and their lives beyond our classroom walls. Our academic programs continue to focus on differentiated instruction where we build upon the individual learning success for each student. Our six course curriculum promotes a collaborative approach with teachers and parents. High School level advanced courses are offered based on successful completion of prerequisite course requirements. 7th & 8th graders experience a higher level of Enrichment Programs outside of their regularly scheduled classes.
MEET OUR MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHERS
St. James Cathedral School’s curriculum aligns with the Sunshine State Standards (now called Next Generation Sunshine State Standards or NGSSS) which are broad statements that describe the knowledge or ability that a student should be able to demonstrate by the end of every grade level. At the heart of a Catholic education, however, is an approach that nurtures the whole person — academically, spiritually, socially, and emotionally. Accordingly, we evaluate all our approaches, methods, resources, and curriculum materials with the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools per the Diocese of Orlando. Our mission is far greater than a single day or a particular component of curriculum; we are forming Christians who Come to Learn. Leave to Serve.
