Middle School

Thank you for your interest in San Jacinto Christian Academy Middle School!

Middle-schoolers face a unique set of needs during their transitional years between “little kids” and “big kids.” SJCA understands those changes in mental, emotional, and academic areas and strives to assist students, and parents, to not only “survive” these years, but to enjoy and triumph in them!
Challenges during these middle years can be kept in perspective through a focused life in Jesus Christ. A Biblical worldview—taught, instilled, and encouraged at SJCA—is a critical means to this end. In addition to daily Bible classes, weekly chapel services, and mission projects, a Biblical worldview is incorporated into all other academic subjects.

SJCA’s partnering with parents during these “middle” years can create some of the best school memories for a Middle Schooler. Please contact SJCA or visit the campus to learn how your student can benefit from being a part of the SJCA family!

The administration and faculty strive to provide the best academic curriculum to the students of SJCA. All students have Bible as a class each day. Students in grades 6-8 participate in academic events sponsored by ACSI such as Math Olympics, Spelling Bee, Science Fair and Speech Meet. Middle School students also take the Terra Nova Achievement Test annually.

All Middle School students meet together in the Rehrer Center for a weekly chapel service designed to meet the specific needs of this age group.

Middle students participate in two service projects each year; tutoring appointments at local public schools, occasional mission trips; and sponsoring a Compassion International child.
