Middle School (6-8)

Students With Boat


At the heart of all knowledge, you will always find relationships — between elements, between numbers, between cultures, and individuals. 

At Saint John’s Prep, we leverage the power of relationships to inspire a love of learning in our middle school students, and invite them to connect, explore, create, and discover with a hands-on, experiential curriculum.

6th Grade Highlights

Experiential & interdisciplinary LEARNING

Our 6th graders build life-long relationship skills while they explore a challenging curriculum and learn valuable study habits to prepare them for high school and beyond.

Your 6th-grade student will receive an introduction to German, Chinese, and Spanish as the foundation of the language curriculum. In addition to personal writing instruction, students will have the opportunity to be immersed in hands-on learning experiences from St. John’s University. To round out your student’s prep school experience, arts and activities are interwoven with social studies.

7th and 8th Grade Highlights


Our 7th and 8th-grade classes are integrated, and taught with an interdisciplinary approach, so our students can continue to build relationships with our faculty and begin pursuing their unique gifts and passions.

7th and 8th-grade students can expect classes that provide a holistic approach to learning across subjects, including more flexibility to select unique electives courses that speak to them. Not to mention, we offer advanced-level math opportunities and individual music lessons to support the scholastic and artistic development of your child. And when they’re ready for global experiences, they’ll be prepared after immersive instruction in German, Chinese, or Spanish.

Fine Arts Programming

Performing and visual arts are an integral part of our curriculum at Saint John’s Prep. Art and music are offered on alternating days, and students can choose from band, choir, and orchestra. The theater department stages multiple productions during the school year that middle schoolers can participate in; the all-school musical in the spring is always a crowd favorite!
