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.
