7th Grade 

Charis Center is pleased to announce the addition of a 7th grade class for the 2018-19 school year. Based on the philosophy of Maria Montessori,  the program of study is an “integrated thematic approach” that ties separate disciplines of the curriculum into studies of the physical universe, the world of nature, and the human experience. This integrated approach is one of Montessori’s great strengths. As an example, when students study the culture and history of the ancient Greeks in Humanities, they also study mythology and read Homer and the great Greek Tragedies. As they read Shakespeare the learn about the Elizabethan period and attend a performance of a Shakespearean play. 

Our Middle School Curricula takes a more traditional approach to course content, preparing students for self directed learning, problem solving, and critical thinking. Students are expected to demonstrate competency in the core subjects of math, science, history, writing and reading.

High School Areas of Concentration

Students in the high school program have the opportunity to explore their interests and passions with a variety of courses while also focusing on the core areas of math, science, social science, and humanities. Students can select a major area of interest to develop. All major areas of study prepare the students for college or career.
