Junior High

Junior high is an ever-changing, exciting, and challenging time. Young teens thrive on attention from others, need acceptance from peers and desire to know more about the world around them. They are developmentally at the season of their lives when habits, character and values become solidified.

It is our goal to provide a safe, secure, and encouraging environment where students grow in their independence and develop academically, socially, and spiritually as they prepare for high school.

Our junior high curriculum is comprised of Bible, English, history, math, PE, science and an elective of the student’s choice. In addition, there is great emphasis on the moral development of each student by providing opportunities to develop personal integrity, social & leadership skills, and a desire to serve.

Our weekly chapel programs provide opportunities for students to grow spiritually, while outreach and mission programs help them put their faith into action. Your junior high student will enjoy: Activities such as athletic teams, fine arts programs, outreach programs, Lego team and student government.

We teach students to delight in God’s Word and his Truth. The students will pray daily and will also attend a weekly chapel that is especially geared for junior high students.

Experiential Learning is at the heart of Restoration Academy

A typical learning cycle consists of four stages: action, reflection, conceptualization, and application. The experience, or action, serves to anchor students in a common context that they can then reflect on together. During or after the reflection phase, the teacher helps students identify and name their observations as specific knowledge or skills. In the last phase, students apply what they have learned to new contexts.Experiential activities, which are inspired by real-world problems and require significant collaboration, are important because they represent a particularly authentic form of learning. They also ensure that students—not the teacher—do the intellectual heavy-lifting of extracting meaning from experience.
