Grades 5-8

Student Life


Each middle school student is assigned an advisory group that meets multiple times each week to participate in chapel reflections, leadership opportunities, school spirit celebrations, etc. Faculty advisors develop personal relationships with their small group of students to help give academic and emotional support throughout the middle school experience.


“Eli the Eagle” is the PBS mascot. The ELI Way is a positive behavior support plan that focuses on teaching the students Biblical character and behavior traits. The ELI Way stands for Excellence, Leadership and Integrity and focuses on developing specific behaviors in our students. These behaviors are outlined in our ELI Motto: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Honest. Students can earn rewards and privileges for making good choices and following the ELI Way.

Extracurricular Activities

In addition to athletic teams and the arts, middle school students may choose to participate in extracurricular activities including Junior Silver Steppers, cheerleaders, jump rope team and a variety of academic clubs including student council, BETA, and robotics.
