At City School we care about the whole person: academic achievement, character development, and living in community. As such, we have developed a document that outlines some goals for our graduates. An ideal graduating student:
possesses a strong foundation in academic skills
serves others in a diverse community
possesses a well-regulated will
adapts & perseveres when challenged
enjoys God & His kingdom.
Middle Schoolers have the opportunity to participate in a rich and diverse academic experience:
We read and memorize the Bible and pray together every day.
We “set a feast” of rich, soul-nourishing materials for students to encounter.
We practice delight in literature, reason, history, art, music, poetry, and the natural world.
We learn communally during class times: prioritizing narrations, discussions, and explanations by students over direct teaching by the teacher or tech-enhanced learning.
We affirm differences of cultural background, income level, religious tradition, academic, emotional, and physical talents and abilities, and future schooling and vocational paths.
