Bible

Sixth grade students study the life of Jesus Christ. Specific studies will include the character of Christ, His major experiences on earth, His miracles, parables, and sermons. A detailed study of the Sermon on the Mount will equip students with an understanding of life expectations for His followers. New Testament studies will be a regular part of each class. Students will also participate in ten service hours for the year.

Language Arts

6th grade English encompasses the areas of grammar, composition, vocabulary, reading, and literature. Thematic units will allow students to reflect on their reading and writing assignments through Biblical application. Writing skills are developed through creative and analytic assignments. Essays include narrative, argumentative, and informational writing. Literature appreciation emphasizes both critical thinking and comprehension skills. Students read a mixture of classical and modern literature, non-fiction texts, short stories, myths and poetry. Classwork and homework include responses to literature or nonfiction text, independent home reading, annotation, vocabulary, essays, and group projects. 

Math

By the end of sixth grade, students at two levels will have mastered the four arithmetic operations using whole numbers, fractions, decimals, positive and negative integers. They will learn to accurately compute and solve problems at a level most appropriate for their developmental stage of mathematical processing. Students will solve straightforward pre-algebraic numerical equations, and will write and solve world problems for all concepts covered.
