Junior high school serves as a transition period between elementary and high school.
The Lima Christian School middle school academic program is challenging, creative, and centered on Christ. Independence and interaction are encouraged as students participate in individual tasks, group activities, and community events.
Throughout the day, students can be seen working in a lab, creating drama productions for Bible classes, and engaging each other in debate and dialogue. In addition, challenging courses with an integrated study skills program across the curriculum prepare students for high school.
The emphasis is on strong reading comprehension, complex essay and research writing, and the solid algebra skills necessary for higher level math. All these activities help the students to perform academically, think critically, and engage their world creatively.
