MIDDLE SCHOOL

Charleston Collegiate recognizes that students make the transition from childhood to young adulthood during their years in the Middle School (grades 5-8).

During this time, students are discovering themselves as well as navigating the balance between their desire for independence and their need for supportive and nurturing adult guidance. Middle School students are under the advisement of a core group of teachers dedicated to their social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development that enables them to receive individual guidance and support. The Charleston Collegiate Middle School team of faculty embraces this Advisory Program with enthusiasm and great care.​

Students in the Middle School benefit from an average class size of 14 where we strive to promote the personal qualities that make each individual student unique, as well as to develop responsible global citizens and effective future leaders.

The academic expectations in the Middle School are challenging, and there is an emphasis on exposure to broad artistic, cultural, and social experiences.  Students in the Middle School take core classes in humanities, S.T.E.M., wellness, and Spanish. In addition, students are exposed to various forms of fine arts and computer technology.
 

  

  

  
INTERMEDIATE PROGRAM - GRADES 5 AND 6

The Intermediate Program is the initial phase of the Charleston Collegiate Middle School and is designed to meet the physical, cognitive, and social needs of early adolescents. Fifth and sixth grade is a time of growth and transition when students have a need to become more independent and engaged.

As students are experiencing this period of change, they are advised by an intimate group of teachers to use their creativity and strong problem-solving skills to positively impact the world around them. Using a balance of structure and freedom, the Intermediate Program provides the perfect environment for nurturing self-sufficiency and independence, while creating a seamless transition between the Lower School and Middle School.

The Intermediate Program places great importance on aiding the growth of students’ individual strengths while engaging them in collaborative activities that help build the necessary alliances needed during early adolescence. Our outdoor classrooms, ropes courses, character education classes, and overnight field trips such as the annual trip to YMCA Camp Greenville, help to create a feeling of unity and comradery.

All students go through unique developmental stages as they grow. While students grow in height and weight, their social and cognitive abilities mature as well. The Intermediate Program uses a holistic approach to meet all of the physical, cognitive, and social needs of a fifth and sixth grade student.

MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAMS: INTERMEDIATE AND JUNIOR HIGH

JUNIOR HIGH PROGRAM - GRADES 7 AND 8

The final phase of the Charleston Collegiate Middle School is the Junior High Program. This program is designed to meet the physical, cognitive, and social needs of early adolescence.

Seventh and eighth grade is a time of maturation, when students are searching for a sense of individuality and independence. As students are experiencing this rapid, erratic period of change, they are given more opportunities for self-exploration and leadership.

The Junior High Program places great importance on aiding self-sufficiency while advising students to become responsible citizens that positively impact the world around them. This program creates a seamless transition between our Middle School and Upper School.
