We seek to provide opportunities for students to interact and build relationships with faculty and other students.

Shalom Christian Academy Photo #6 - Our goal is to support and prepare our middle school students during this transitional time in their lives. Academic credibility is achieved through small classes and directed curriculum. This allows for increased contact with teaching staff who model our living curriculum. Small groups comprised of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students help to build relationships that continue into the high school years.
- We seek to provide an environment that engages the mind-and the heart-of every student.
- Our programs are established on the fact that God`s word is the standard of truth-guiding our school`s focus, purpose, and direction.
- Our Christian culture and education standpoint is simply an extension of what is taught first by parents in the home and through the local church.
