Grade 7

Grade 7 is often a transformative time for adolescents. No longer new to Middle School, they navigate campus with more confidence, have new opportunities to learn beyond the classroom, and explore their passions and interests with greater focus. The foundation they build in this critical time will pave the way for continued success in Middle School and, ultimately, Upper School.
