Middle School (Grades 6-8)

In keeping with our school’s philosophy, our Middle School goal is to promote the academic, social, emotional, and spiritual welfare of the students in grades 6, 7 and 8.

We are committed to offering a comprehensive academic program that provides students with the skills needed to become independent, inquiring learners. We cultivate empathy, respect, and tolerance of others. Our courses support the development of moral strength, academic honesty, and individual responsibility for one’s actions.

Learning in the Middle School

An important part of being a successful student is becoming organized and learning to manage time well. Success involves students knowing their strengths and weaknesses as a learner, their own learning style and what works for them.

Advisory System in the Middle School

Seisen’s advisor-advisee program provides each middle school student an opportunity to choose a faculty advisor with whom she feels comfortable and in whom she feels she can confide in. Each student chooses an advisor after the first month of school. Students meet with their advisor in groups and individually. Students are given a chance to explore how they might handle common situations, and explore possible responses.
