Seventh Grade Academics
The over all theme for the school is, “Grasp the Past: the building blocks of the future are laid upon the foundations of the past.” Seventh grade integrates subjects around the following historical sub themes:
- September/October/November: Carpe Diem
- December/January/February/March: Chivalry…Does it Matter?
- April/May/June: The Renaissance…See the Light
Field trips are an important part of learning and provide excellent hands-on experiences in the real world. Outings are scheduled periodically for each grade level to enhance the curriculum.
Seventh Grade Field Trips:
- September Spirit Adventure
- Aqueduct Day
- Rock Climbing
- Starry Night
- Fencing Classes (5)
- GPS Day
- Medieval Faire
- Sailing Adventure
Students should expect regular, daily homework. Homework is relevant and reinforces the lessons taught at school. Seventh grade students should expect to spend a minimum of 70-80 minutes each evening on homework.
