Middle School Academics
Implementing “a Christ-centered, educational environment that equips students to develop character, demonstrate competence and discover their calling” allows students in 6th, 7th and 8th Grade at HCA to continue developing a strong academic foundation.
We desire for each Middle School student to…
- Engage in studies & projects with their peers
- Develop personal & academic maturity
- Apply their critical thinking skills throughout life
Our instruction focuses on strategies that engage students in the learning process and promote higher-level thinking while meeting individual learning needs.
These 4 strategies promote effective academic success for each student…
- Project-based Learning
- Thinking Maps
- Differentiated Learning Techniques
- Technology Integration
Students move between classes to various department disciplines.
With the use of differentiated learning techniques, HCA engages students regardless of whether they are an auditory, visual or kinesthetic learner.
Technology-integrated learning in Middle School reinforces classroom instruction by captivating students in a new way. Each year, teachers are trained to effectively use a variety of classroom technology.
Some of our classroom technology includes…
- Learning Apps
- Mobile iPad Cart
- Interactive Whiteboard
- Document Cameras
- Digital Projectors
A continual use of technology in these grade levels helps familiarize students with technological devices and processes that will be used in their everyday life.
HCA implements a quality curriculum that is standards-based, rigorous, and developmentally appropriate. Our curriculum is diligently reviewed each year to find the most effective strategy that helps our students achieve personal and academic success.
The curriculum also aligns with Texas educational requirements.
In addition to core curriculum subjects, Middle School students participate in…
- Fine Arts
- Athletics (optional)

The Middle School curriculum focuses on teaching through discipleship themes to think critically from a Biblical worldview.
