Academics » Middle School

Amelia Academy’s Middle School is comprised of grades six through eight. Students change classes, and move through seven daily academic periods. While most classes are consistent throughout the year, several are taught on a semester basis. Our exploratory courses provide opportunities for students to develop good skills in public speaking, research, keyboarding, creative writing and studying.

Opportunities are available for students to participate in sports programs including soccer, volleyball, cheerleading, basketball, softball and baseball. Participation in forensics and creative writing competitions is encouraged.
