Middle School

The Middle School program at Brandon Academy supports the mission and philosophy of the school.  Everything in the Middle School is done with a focus on high school preparation.  Grade 6 provides an introduction to the Middle School years and allows a safe and nurturing environment for students to develop.  Grade 7 provides the opportunity for student put into practice the independence for which they have been preparing.  Grade 8 is a time for the students to reach complete independence and hone their skills, which will prepare them for our AP high school program.
 

Our middle school curriculum is geared toward average to above average students.  Students are instructed in English/Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies and Spanish.  For those students who have been identified as needing further academic challenges, we offer the opportunity for acceleration.

The focus of the Middle School program is to build self-confidence, independence and responsibility.  Individual needs of students are met through placement in their core courses.  Students are able to take two to four electives per year, which enhances the curriculum.  Students may take such classes as STEM, robotics, visual arts, drama, music and many more.  An emphasis on social interaction is practiced during recess and lunch.  Off campus day field trips are frequent, and we offer overnight trips to Washington D.C and NASA.  The Middle School program is dedicated to developing respectful, responsible students who will find success in our AP program for High School.
