Middle School:
5th through 8th Grade

Middle school is the most formidable time in a student's development. These are the years of metamorphosis where students grow to think critically, creatively and independently.  Students are taught the skills needed to develop self–discipline, a strong moral character and a solid work ethic. Our students grow with grace and mature into responsible, focused students.

Our small class sizes and supportive teachers give Middle School students the confidence they need to advance academically. These students will develop leadership, moral character, communication and study skills. 

Centered on a traditional university–prep curriculum, students study English, mathematics, science, history, foreign language (French, Spanish and Latin), physical education, music, Bible and other electives. Writing and technology are integrated throughout the curriculum. Courses are Honors and Pre–Advanced Placement (Pre–AP) level.

What is Honors and Pre–AP?

All course work in the middle and high school is taught at an advanced level. The textbooks used are often above grade level and texts are supplemented with special projects throughout the year including research papers, oral presentations, lab assignments and field trips. This coursework is designed to prepare students to take Advanced Placement courses for university credit while in high school.


Fairfax Christian School is providing my son the academic challenges we feel we have missed at other schools. When he graduates, we feel he will be well prepared, academically, for college.
