This course offering guide has been designed to provide parents and students with an overview of the Westminster Christian Middle School curriculum. Due to the academic, extra-curricular, and policy information contained in this guide, its careful review is strongly encouraged.
The school day for the middle school student is divided into seven periods. During the school day students will take two electives and the following core academic courses:
- Social Studies
These core courses will provide each student with the opportunity to develop a solid academic foundation. This foundation goes beyond acquiring academic content by also including the development of positive study habits. Such habits emphasize personal organization, time management, and study skills.
Students are given the opportunity to choose two elective courses each semester. Elective courses may be semester or year-long and are offered during the school day. Choosing the elective classes is a first step in assuming responsibility for planning one’s schedule. Therefore, elective classes should be chosen with personal interest as well as with academic benefit in mind.
