Middle School Grades 6-8

Students filled with excitement and cheering.
Mount Paran has proven a great fit for our son. Middle school is awkward enough; the students and teachers have provided such balance that our son felt at ease right away. The balance has been a comfortable, caring, Christian environment where classes are small enough to make participation inviting. He’s gained exposure to new types of electives, gourmet lunch every day, a nice balance for athletics and the arts, and the school has been an extension of what we teach at home.​​

Clubs and Extracurriculars

MPCS middle school students are given opportunities to explore their talents. Club signups occur after school begins by contacting the club sponsors.

Continuing with the End in Mind

Biblical Worldview Immersion

Covenantally part of everything we do, students participate in weekly chapel, daily Bible classes, prayer, and opportunities for service, which are foundational to the Christian life experience in middle school.

Aiming for the Arts

Middle school students are encouraged to explore their creativity and develop new skills in various arts programs available. Visual art galleries and stage performances occur in the state-of-the-art Murray Arts Center facility. 

Athletics Participation

Middle school is when student-athletes begin to create bonds with teammates, build their skills, and push beyond physical limits. Competing in cut and no-cut sports is a highlight of the MPCS experience in the middle grades.

Guiding Them Through

Bumps in the road are to be expected in the middle school years. Our counseling team stands ready to guide students, teachers, and parents in navigating these times using God's Word and through ParentEd. Talks.


On the Path Toward College-Prep Curriculum

Middle school offers a wide range of just-right curricular offerings, challenging students to push themselves academically. Core subjects are taught through student-centered methods in a climate of high expectations. Every subject is taught through the lens of biblical Truth.

We have always been and continue to be impressed with the quantity and variety of extracurricular activities at MPCS. There is definitely a well-rounded offering that provides opportunity for all interests.
