After a year in the Middle Grades, De Chantal Seventh grade students are confident, settled into their routine and able to manage a challenging curriculum. Religion focuses on the Biblical study of the New Testament. Students learn about Christ’s life and the life of His Disciples. In each academic area, Reading, Foreign Language, Writing, English, Science, Mathematics and History-Social Studies, a challenging curriculum continues to prepare students for high school. Teachers design lessons that challenge all learning styles and encourage independent growth. Varieties of Field Trips offer students the ability to learn by doing and offer leadership opportunities. Students are encouraged to work and learn cooperatively and develop solutions to challenges they confront.
