Grades 7 & 8: Learning Forward through the Middle School Years
During the Middle School years, your child experiences thrilling, sometimes bewildering changes as they transition from a child into a teenager. At Sierra Canyon, we have designed our Middle School program to help students effectively direct all their inquisitive energy, while helping build the academic, social, and emotional skills to thrive as a learner and individual.
Our Middle School students share our sweeping, sunlit Upper Campus building with students in grades 9 through 12—so your child gets a first-hand glimpse of what lies ahead while feeling firmly grounded in their own close-knit community.
Designing an original physics experiment to demonstrate angular momentum, trying a hand at improv comedy, exploring Washington, D.C. with teachers and classmates, or launching a fundraiser to buy supplies for a neighborhood school, your child grows as a unique human being and member of a larger society.
By the end of 8th grade, your child has become an impressively self-aware, self-advocating, and self-directed young person—primed to succeed in our Upper School and to make a significant difference in the wider world.
