St. Croix Catholic's Middle School
The team of middle school faculty guides students to a deeper level of self-reflection, discovering their God-given talents and limitations, developing leadership skills consistent with God's plan, and contributing to the goodness of God's creation. This effort starts right away in 6th grade and is integrated into every subject and all activities. By the time our students reach 8th grade, they are confident, independent learners who take responsibility for their own education and personal formation. They aspire to make a difference in the world with their scientific, mathematical, and communication skills. They interpret the history and hope of humanity through the lens of the Catholic faith. They are literally the leaders of the student body: from running Student Council meetings, to leading morning prayer, to planning and executing all-school events.
"Man was created for greatness - for God himself; he was created to be filled by God. But his heart is too small for the greatness to which it is destined. It must be stretched..." Pope Benedict XVI
