At Christ the King Middle School, grades 6-8, we believe that academic excellence and joyful learning go hand in hand. Our mission is to encourage young people to explore intellectual topics with curiosity, enthusiasm, and a willingness to work collaboratively. We teach our students to ask meaningful questions, and to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information to find innovative solutions.
Our faculty members are highly skilled at working with students in this developmental age range. They understand the challenges and opportunities that middle school students face, and they know how to guide them as they expand their knowledge and skills. By encouraging our students to step outside their comfort zones and explore new ideas, we help them to find their place in the world and prepare for future success.
Students in grades 6 through 8 are divided into mixed-grade-level houses. Each house is named after a saint or sacred person they would like to emulate and has a motto, mascot, and cheer, as well as a banner that hangs in the hallway. Teacher mentors oversee the houses, and our eighth-grade house leaders work together to lead house meetings.
