Bay Christian Academy 's Middle School program is structured to provide
your child with small group activities and peer tutoring to help the
social and emotional development. Our program includes weekly chapels,
daily devotionals and lessons with Biblical integration to promote
spiritual growth. Projects, a diversity of lessons, and field trips
provide for the different learning styles of our students.
sixth, seventh, and eighth graders form a team that meets for breaks,
chapels, lunches, electives, and retreats. Students rotate among four
teachers for the main courses. This allows them to get ready for the
multiple class changes in high school.
Since communication is
essential to all, weekly folders go home on Mondays with general
information and graded papers. Students are required to purchase a
homework agenda to record work on a daily basis. Teachers strive to
answer calls within 48 hours and often communicate with parents to
set-up parent/teacher conferences with the whole team. If a student is
struggling academically or with discipline, he/she is put on a daily
contract where teachers record on a period-by-period basis the student's
performance. All this is designed to make the student an independent
learner who is responsible for his/her own actions.
our desire to provide a rich exposure to the best quality material, we
use a variety of publishers: Prentice Hall, Scott Foresman, Association
of Christian Schools International Press, Glencoe, and others. Biblical
integration is a daily occurrence in our classrooms through which
students discover God's point-of-view, evaluate different worldviews,
discuss Biblical responses to situations, and develop a foundation for
the truth of their faith.
