Middle School

Middle School students will learn:

  • Academically, to read and write and learn math and science, and much more.
  • Socially, they will learn as a classroom community and grow in relationships with teachers and students.
  • Spiritually, they will have an opportunity to deepen your relationship with your Lord and learn and experience what it means to be a disciple of Jesus and to SERVE our King.

To see our ethos in action, please schedule a visit to the Roosevelt Park Campus. Kent Ezell | | 616 818-3740
