School Notes:

  • Middle school students in grades 4-8 follow the curriculum guidelines for the state of Pennsylvania, but are alos enriched with study skills, organization, written expression and an emphasis on reading comprehension for each subject studied. College bound high school students also follow PA standards, as well as participate in a multitude of 1/2 year seminar classes as a bridge to college. The skills taught in middle school continue through secondary classes with an emphasis on critical thinking, understanding themselves as learners, using technology as a tool throughout classes,
