A Day in the Life of a 6th Grade Student

As the final year of Grammar School, Sixth Grade is a purposeful next step toward preparing students for success in the Upper School. Students are encouraged to take responsibility in every area of their education this year, including time management, homework and how they treat one another. It’s a year of growth, but it’s a fun year, too!

We start each day with Chapel and prayer to set the day’s course.
