At City Christian School, we understand that the middle school years are one of the most critical stages in a young person’s emotional and social development. That’s why, along with helping students pursue excellence in their academic course work and spiritual development, we also create an environment where middle school students can grow and thrive in a supportive and cooperative social environment.
In middle school, students are given the opportunity to work on team projects in the classroom. Students are offered for the first time choices for their elective classes. They participate in weekly chapel services. Students participate in out of town events for outdoor school and the Washington D.C. trip. Sports more important both in P.E. classes and interscholastic team athletics.
Middle school academics includes strong phonics-based English courses with an emphasis that develops skills in reading, writing, spelling, grammar, vocabulary, and penmanship. Math classes transition students from the foundations of arithmetic to the abstract concepts of algebraic thinking. History, science, health, and social studies include an understanding of God’s role, purpose, and design in the natural order. Paramount for every student at City Christian Schools is spiritual development. That’s why at every level, prayer, devotions, chapel services, scripture memorization, and Bible are incorporated into school life.
In the pursuit of excellence, students are encouraged to explore and participate in a variety of formal competitions, including academic, artistic, music, and athletics. Students are also acknowledged with achievement awards, which include scripture trophies, character awards, honor roll, Principal’s list, good conduct, attendance, and scholastic achievement.

Junior high students get an opportunity to participate in an adventure they won’t forget, leaving Portland for ten days arriving in Washington DC and surrounding areas of national and historic interest. Funds are raised by the students and their families. Students return with a much greater appreciation of American history. The trip often includes a visit to Arlington National Cemetery, an Amish farm in Pennsylvania, Colonial Williamsburg and Fort McHenry. Stops might include national monuments such as the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument, the Smithsonian, Independence Hall, Gettysburg and the Naval Academy at Annapolis.
