Middle school philosophy

At Moline Christian School, we view the middle school years as an opportunity to love, challenge, and prepare our students for high school and beyond. We provide an environment where students can safely explore, grow, and learn more about themselves and the world in which they live.

The framework and foundation from our elementary program propels us forward to teach our middle school students how to live their faith day in and day out. It is exciting to see our students grow physically, academically and most importantly, spiritually. Their 8th Grade Faith Projects are an anticipated and inspirational conclusion to their years at Moline Christian School.

Our middle school staff does a wonderful job relating to this age group and brings new challenges to the education of our students, incorporating technology into the curriculum.
