The middle school years, grades 5-8 at Mount Vernon, represent a time of exciting change in our School. Located on both campuses, Middle School serves as the nexus between Lower School and Upper School. It is the intersection between being a kid and becoming a teenager. Students encounter thrilling opportunities and challenges as they grow during these years. It is here that the Mount Vernon Mindset
truly begins to flourish, as our Middle Schoolers utilize their full range of skill sets to seek out their own solutions, make ethical decisions, communicate effectively, think creatively and innovate and collaborate in every facet of their lives.
Each day, approximately 330 students explore and experience active, hands-on academic units prepared by highly-qualified and dedicated faculty to meet the unique academic, social, and emotional needs of all students. We are proud that our faculty are passionate about partnering with parents to help students navigate the transition of this stage of life.
While our students take courses in Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science, Foreign language, Christian Education, Fine Arts, and Media/Technology, there are several key programs that provide tremendous access to real world experiences.
