Grades 6-8

Confident Problem Solvers. Critical Thinkers. Prepared for the Future.

6th through 8th grade classrooms at CKS are fast-paced, dynamic laboratories of learning. The transition between elementary and high school requires a completely new mindset–the ability to accept more responsibility, face greater expectations, and take on new challenges. The opportunity to engage students at these transformative ages in a safe, nurturing environment is crucial to their future success and to prepare them for the next step in their journey.


Digging deeper into our rigorous curriculum, you can find our 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students marveling at their discoveries in science, creating new ways to show what they know through technology, thinking critically about how to solve algebra problems and engaging thoughtfully in the community service that is a staple of a CKS education.


Our students come to us as digital natives, and many are already adept in the world of technology. The middle school 1:1 digital technology program enhances learning through access to curriculum resources, digital notetaking and presentations, and effective research. The infusion of advanced instruction in coding, VEX robotics, and the use of CAD in STEM rounds out our innovative technology program.

Day in the Life

6th through 8th grade students are on campus for a full day of school from 7:55 a.m.-3 p.m., with Aftercare available until 6 p.m. Students switch throughout multiple classrooms and teachers in 6th-8th grade. Classes last approximately 44 minutes.

“What I found to be truly special was the gesture of kindness, respect and love the 8th graders showed for the younger students. It is reflective of the type of culture you find within the walls of Christ the King Catholic School.”  Kindergarten parent's thoughts on the CKS 8th/K Buddy Program
