Middle School at CCA includes all students in grades 6 – 8. We work together to keep all grades united, not only within the grade, but also as a unified Middle School. The Middle Schoolers look forward to their own events and participation and enthusiasm is very high!
Middle School Fun Day
This is a one-day event during the time the High School students are at their overnight retreat. The purpose is to introduce all students in all grades to one another and stress unity and team building. The teachers prepare a day filled with fun and activities ranging from team building games to a community service project. The day begins with a Chapel featuring the Middle School Students that are in Praise Ensemble. A guest speaker will share a special message, and then students break into pre-assigned groups to continue the day. An extended lunch is given where students are free to mingle and sit with each other and share the excitement of the day. The day ends with an exit survey and snacks provided by parents of the middle school students. It is a wonderful way to start the year and get to know all the students in Middle School.
UNITE is specifically a Middle School Event led by our High School Mentors. Approximately every six weeks, the team of Mentors organize an after-school “youth group” type atmosphere. Each event begins with a Christian speaker that will share with the students. Fun and games follow with pizza and drinks. Middle School students look forward to this event that encourages unity and bonding.
Science Day at Darien Lake
This end of year event is one that every Middle School student attends with excitement and enthusiasm. Science Day is coordinated with the Science Department to help students better understand the “mechanics” of how some of the amusement rides work. The morning is spent riding rides and completing the science packet given to them before they enter the park. After lunch, the students are divided into groups with a chaperone and are free to spend the remainder of the afternoon riding rides and having fun with friends.
