Following the leadership example of Christ, Mt. Bethel students are challenged to learn by experience that “it is more blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20:35
Middle School Main Campus A child’s middle school years are among the most fascinating, challenging and rewarding. At Mt. Bethel, our middle school faculty are deeply invested in the lives of students and understand clearly how best to lead them through this period of tremendous personal and academic growth. Put simply, they teach middle school because they understand and love middle schoolers. The middle school at Mt. Bethel is characterized by a culture of inclusion and respect. Faculty set high expectations for academic achievement and personal conduct and come alongside students to model that behavior. Our faculty invest the time necessary to know each child well in order to guide them personally, academically, and spiritually from a position of authentic relationship. As well as we know our students, we understand that parents know their children best. At Mt. Bethel Christian Academy, we count it a privilege to partner with parents to help students learn to think clearly and carefully, with discernment and understanding. As parents, we want to know that our children will grow in independence and be prepared for each phase of growth. Mt. Bethel meets this challenge by equipping students to reason Clubs/Activities: Band and Choral Festival District Honor Band and Chorus House System Morning News Video Stream National Geographic Bee National Junior Honor Society Recycling Robotics Science Fair Spelling Bee persuasively and articulate themselves with precision and confidence so that when they enter our upper school, they will be able to reliably evaluate all truth through a decidedly Christian worldview. Preparing a child for our rigorous upper school program requires a challenging and diverse curriculum. Our math program is leveled to best match the needs of each learner. Our science program is housed in lab environments. Our history program features a Pre-AP Human Geography course for eighth graders who have demonstrated their readiness for advanced studies. Our language arts program is divided into two classes, grammar and literature, to allow each student the best opportunity to become a proficient reader and writer. And our middle school Bible curriculum culminates in the study of Apologetics, helping a child discern and defend his faith. To complement our core academic offerings, we offer multiple courses in World Languages, fine arts, performing arts and physical education.
