Seventh Grade Academics

YEAR-LONG THEME
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
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

HOMEWORK
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.
