“For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, virtue with knowledge, knowledge with self- control, self-control with endurance, endurance with devotion, devotion with mutual affection, and mutual affection with love.”

Heroism and Journey Grade Level Experiences:
To kick off the year, the 9th grade will organize and compete in their own Greek Olympics
— a semester-long exploration of the Greeks in History and English class. New and returning classmates alike will bond over challenges, both physical and mental, in a quest for Olympic glory. Nothing brings a group together like a shared opponent!
As their classroom studies progress, the 9th grade will shift their focus to the Middle Ages. This interdisciplinary exploration will culminate in a Medieval Banquet, including themed food and entertainment provided by the class.
