HCA’s Middle School program challenges students in developing high school readiness in all core classes: literature, math, science, and social studies. Rotating quarterly exploration classes expose the students to nine-week courses in PE, visual arts, STEM, and drama/band. An end-of-day homework period permits students to develop time management skills and request assistance in completing assignments. Leadership opportunities are available through participation in National Junior Beta Club, and students engage in community service and giving through school-coordinated service activities. Middle school students also enjoy the opportunity to interact with their peers through an annual Teambuilding retreat at Woodlands Camp (Cleveland, GA), weekly chapel, a lock-in event in March, and a daily outdoor recess period. Middle school sports such as cross-country, volleyball, cheerleading, and basketball are offered to grades 6-8.
