GRADE 5 to 8

Fostering Leadership

Middle School (Grades 5-8) subjects are taught in a rotary style, enabling teachers to focus more on their area of speciality.  This also provides a continuity of learning in each subject area as students progress through these grades. Dedicated Music, Science and French classrooms enhance the rotary experience.

Math & Science

Students follow a progressive, text-based math curriculum throughout middle school, and are also provided with opportunities to apply mathematical knowledge and reasoning to ‘real life’ applications.  In Science, students explore a wide variety of topics (including those found in the Ontario Curriculum) each year. The RCA science curriculum is based upon grade specific Christian textbooks but has a strong focus on hands-on learning and investigation. 

Other Highlights of Middle School:

  • Crew Time at the beginning of each day, with their homeroom teacher. This time is dedicated to prayer, devotional readings and social-emotional development

  • Daily Bible class (or chapel on Wednesday) 

  • Weekly art & music classes

  • Physical education three times a week

  • Opportunities for inter-school competitions in a variety of sports: cross country, track and field, badminton, soccer, volleyball, bowling, floor hockey and basketball. 

  • Periodic ‘elective’ afternoons provide students with the opportunity to explore other areas of interest and learn new skills. 

  • Leadership opportunities through student council, chapel praise team & tech teams, announcements, safety patrol and more.

  • Private music lessons (separate from RCA classes and tuition) are available on-site upon request.
