Middle school is transformative. It’s a bridge between childhood and the teen years of high school and college. Middle schoolers are preparing for increasing independence and responsibility and learning crucial lessons about character and leadership.
A Christ-Centered Culture
At Lansing Christian School, we not only help middle school students prepare for higher studies through rigorous academics, but we also ground them in the spiritual knowledge that they belong to God and to the school community. In this intentional, Christ-centered culture, children in grades 6 to 8 gain the confidence they need to explore talents, take on leadership roles, and grow in Christian faith.
Each middle school student is assigned to a family group that includes pre-teens in grades 6-8 and a lead teacher. Family groups work together during special events such as the overnight retreat, spirit week, and field days. The groups also plan chapel and other activities. In addition, students have the opportunity to mentor younger students throughout the year. Each student knows that they belong.
The middle school curriculum is designed to incorporate STEM and help students apply and connect ideas and complex concepts across subject areas. A Christian worldview is firmly woven into every subject. Core courses and electives include:
- Social Studies
- Music (band, choir, or general music)
Activities outside of the classroom help students explore interests, deepen social connections, and build leadership skills. Middle school extracurriculars include:
- Student Council
- Chapel Praise and Worship Team
- Music Festivals and Competitions
- Prayer and Bible Study Groups
- Science Olympiad
- Mathematics Competition
Special events and activities in middle school include an overnight retreat, field days, service day, spirit week, and field trips.
The athletics program at Lansing Christian School focuses on supporting the academic and athletic success of each student and glorifying God. We’ve seen how lessons of sportsmanship, leadership, respect, character, honor, and discipline can have a lifelong impact on our students.
Middle school boys and girls have opportunities to participate in a variety of sports.
- Cross Country
- Equestrian Club
