Challenging the Untapped Potential Within

We know that the change from childhood to adolescence is a critical time for students and can often be difficult. Capital Day Middle School includes students grades 5-8.  The small classes and attention to personal growth allow our Middle School students a safe environment to develop into confident young leaders. The Middle School curriculum includes English, History, Geography and Civics, Science and Engineering, Spanish, Health, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 and Geometry. Each year our students participate in field studies and travel to places such as Space Camp, Marine Biology Sea Camp, Chicago Museums, or Pioneer Settlements. During these trips, close friendships and a sense of community are nourished while students have once-in-a-lifetime learning experiences.

 

Our rigorous classes are taught by caring teachers who provide hands-on and engaging lessons. Students are held to high standards so each can thrive in high school. In addition to core classes, students have regular opportunities to choose advisory and enrichment classes based on their interests and are given multiple leadership opportunities. Middle School students serve our local community through project based learning and our school community by leading service projects for younger students. Through these experiences, Middle School students see themselves as part of a larger community and learn that one's actions can make a difference in the world. Capital Day Middle School prepares students for success in high school and our alumni are often top in their class.
