Fifth and Sixth Grade

 

The Intermediate school student at New Covenant Academy learns in an innovative program that combines a number of rich interdisciplinary curriculum and transitional elements into a unique method for a successful transition into Jr. High school. Emphasis on a basic foundation in fundamental skills incorporates a variety of experiences to enrich each day. In Intermediate school, a student develops a love of learning and explores individual capabilities. Learning isn't limited to the classroom. Students participate in field trips and hands-on activities that promote real-world learning experiences. Along with educational activities, the students participate in a variety of community outreaches including nursing homes, and "feed the hungry" programs.

The teachers are highly qualified educators who incorporate creative and innovative teaching strategies with the curriculum, challenging them to succeed. Students gain knowledge and an understanding of how all things fit together in God's plan as revealed in His Word.
