Grades 7-8

Here at the midpoint of schooling, everything is changing – making these “in-between years” a time worth cherishing.

Nobody likes being stuck in the middle – that awkward space between the no longer and the not yet. It is why our seventh and eighth graders have a special place to belong in the Upper School, where they will continue to flourish.

We recognize this window for what it really is — a God-designed unique time in your child’s formative years. We relish navigating the early teen years with your student by fostering intellectual curiosity and nurturing the budding maturity that is beginning to blossom.


Introducing subject matter that goes wider and deeper.

The seventh- and eighth-grade courses of study are building toward the college prep curriculum they’ll soon experience. Students have a set of core classes, including math placement, with electives including world language, art, computer science, health, music, and physical education.


The perfect roles await our emerging artists.

Beyond art class where students learn to create and critique, the arts for seventh and eighth graders expand dramatically to include music and performing arts. Whether acting, performing in the choir, playing in the orchestra or band, or working behind the scenes on the set production crew, there is an ideal role that awaits.


Becoming part of the WC team.

Our seventh and eighth graders have their own teams separate from JV and varsity squads, ensuring they get the instruction, team-building, and playing time to improve their game. Collectively our boys and girls have 14 different opportunities across 11 sports in which they can compete.


All the social connectedness desired (and no phone app required)

Dads and Donuts. Field trips. Navigating new friendships. Knowing God. We strike a balance of fun, service, and knowledge-driven opportunities that are meant to be engaging without being overwhelming.

Quick Facts:

100% Believe

All of our faculty and staff are followers of Jesus Christ and love building relationships with students.

150 Students

The average number of students enrolled in grades seven and eight making us large enough to offer many opportunities for students to plug-in, lead, and serve and small enough for your child to be known.

2019 Honoree

The United States Department of Education recognized us as a recipient of the prestigious National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence for Exemplary High Performance.
