Middle School (7th-8th Grade)
Back Creek provides an encouraging environment that inspires students to strive for excellence and reach their potential. Students build and strengthen their personal identity as well as their identity in Christ.
As our students acquire knowledge and new skills, students in grades 6-8 are encouraged in personal growth and maturity in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Our goal is for students to develop the gifts the Lord has given them, so they might serve Him and be role models to others. Our professionally trained teachers not only have a deep knowledge of their classroom subjects but also have a God-given love and passion for the students.
Parents are key partners with us in helping students understand, the physical, intellectual, emotional and social changes that occur during these years. We want to come, along-side parents, as they guide their child through this time in their lives by challenging them to seek biblical answers and choices.
