During the 6th, 7th and 8th grades at any school, students face the challenge of transitioning into adolescence. At FourteenSix Christian Academy, we whole-heartedly believe that this transition involving physical changes, intellectual development, and spiritual formation can be, with wise and loving guidance, a positive, even course-altering season in a student’s life. Teachers take great care to impart sound Biblical wisdom during Bible class and desire to help shape the students’ appetites for the things of the Kingdom of God.
Students learn to learn and apply math concepts as part of the creation mandate. Math courses are not lock-stepped and students are placed according to diagnostic test results.
In English, students are challenged to fine-tune their use of one of God’s most amazing creations, the human language. English covers parts of speech, develops students’ writing abilities, and cultivates an understanding of sentence structure, analysis of sentence structure, and develops the students’ proper use of words.
Classic and contemporary literature selections are provided through literature reading and work texts. These thoughtfully chosen poems, novel excerpts, essays, and short stories will enrich a students’ literary knowledge, appreciation, and understanding. Small literary groups are designed to enhance a student’s learning ability in critical analysis, Biblical thinking, and understanding effective literary techniques.
This year, our students will focus on mastering U.S. History from 1492 to Present, presented from a Christian perspective, helping students see the hand of God in the events of history, particularly in the development of our own nation. WRITING
6th-8th Grade: For writing skills development, students are guided through an intensive IEW course, wherein a student acquires the skills needed to communicate descriptively, persuasively, and logically.
Students explore the living world with all its wonders. God’s world is brought to life through experiments, activities, dynamic reading, and concept application. Students study organism classification, cellular biology, genetics, and the differences between Creation and evolution.
