Junior High

Instilling Academic Excellence

In grades seven and eight, our mission is to create truly well-rounded students who love to learn.  Our curriculum engages students in critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity. Our aim is for Judson students to be equipped in problem-solving, higher-order thinking and technology/digital literacy. Today's world requires critical thinkers and problem solvers; thus, Judson's junior high program focuses on propelling our students to a higher level, engaging students in integrated studies that encourage independent thought and application of learning.   Judson junior high students are prepared for the high school of their choice, including our excellent Judson High School.


Junior High Academics

Judson uses the World Christian Curriculum developed at Judson to teach students a global and biblical worldview.  Judson's curriculum covers all of global history and integrates research, writing, geography, literature, Bible, cultural and religious studies.  Our Judson STEM program includes a state-of-the-art computer lab, 1:1 Chromebook program for junior high and high school, excellent science and math classes, and the ACSI math competition.  All of our junior high classrooms are all equipped with computers, flat screen TVs, and Wifi.  In addition to core subjects, all Judson Junior High students have classes 1-2 times weekly in art, music, computer, Spanish and physical education.  Additionally, junior high students choose from electives such as student council, journalism, chaplaincy, worship team and our teaching assistant program.

Our year is divided into 6 six-week units. Each unit's learning integrates literature, art, Bible, and history to focus on our unit global history topic.  Math instruction is differentiated according to the student's level, instead of a one-size-fits-all instruction.  We focus on knowledge through investigative learning, "real books" instead of textbooks and worksheets, understanding through critical thinking and wisdom through character development.  Through our Character First program, students are encouraged to focus on and grow in a specific character trait each month
