Middle School (7-8)
“...and Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” - Luke 2:52
Our middle school curriculum lays a solid foundation for learning by helping students develop a healthy self-image, positive attitude and good work habits. All students take core courses in Bible, math, science, language arts, social studies, fine arts, physical education, and health. Elective classes include art, band, choir, drama, logic and reasoning, programming, practical arts and cartooning.
Gender-based advisory groups are an important part of the overall development of the middle school student. Each grade level advisory program is designed to help meet the needs of the student to develop spiritually, socially, emotionally, academically and physically.
Christian values are presented throughout the year. Chapel services serve as an integral part of the curriculum, and all pupils study the Bible. While our Christian mission, as an institution, is to share the gospel of Christ, a relationship with Christ is encouraged, but not mandatory. The Christian Ministries department helps students, faculty and parents with their spiritual needs.
"HBA has been a great school for my son, Kai. He enjoys the academics, he’s enjoyed making new friends, and he’s having opportunities to try new things. He’s trying band, he’s involved with sports, and he’s doing a whole bunch of different things. I just love seeing him blossom."
-David Keuning '85
