Curriculum Survey

The Middle School for Dialectic seeks to promote independent learners by providing instruction and support for students who are developing study habits.  Parents of middle school students routinely sense that their children are less engaged with them at home, and some discplines, such as Latin, are far beyond a parent’s ability. As students advance in middle school, New Covenant provides support through advisory, while at the same time providing instruction through multiple teachers and limited class changes.  The chart below provides an overview of New Covenant’s middle school program.
