What distinguishes our Middle School classes is our single-sex structure with most being just boys or just girls. This gives students the freedom to be their adolescent selves as they tackle new academic challenges and continue to build on foundations laid in the Lower School. The curriculum allows for advancement, choices and participation in grade-wide initiatives like Envision Richmond, the 8th Grade Capstone program.
Our tools are temporary, our teaching is timeless. We don’t know exactly what tomorrow’s tools will look like, but we know they will continually change and we have faith in our teachers that they will sift the wheat from the chaff, that they will be flexible yet discerning in their methods, and that they will always preserve the essential Collegiate teacher/student relationship. We use technology that provides the right tool at the right time, that is suited to individual student needs, and that encourages students to be both connected and present.
