ENVIRONMENT & CURRICULUM

St. John Catholic Middle School offers a learning environment that motivates personal excellence. This is done through small class sizes that enhance the learning experience and prepare students to meet high expectations. The academics themselves meet and exceed Georgia performance standards. Along with in-class teaching, throughout the year students will have off-campus learning experiences.

‚ÄčThe curriculum in the middle school offers a weekly, year-long engagement in visual arts, foreign language, band, and STEM. Also, humanities classes are taught to promote cross-curricular learning of language, literature, religion, geography, and history. The goal is to provide an education that applies to modern times. This includes 21st-century science, math, and arts curriculum that infuses student-centered STEM applications.

HIGH SCHOOL CREDIT IN EIGHTH GRADE

 

8th grade students will have the opportunity to receive high school credit in the content areas of math, ELA, Spanish, and physical science. Spanish is conditional on the student attending St. John starting in 6th grade. Students are required to satisfactorily complete the requirements for that credit. The content area teacher and administrator will then evaluate each student individually and give a recommendation.
