Middle School

Welcome to Seattle Christian Middle School

At Seattle Christian, we are committed to providing a premier educational experience for our middle school students. Our middle school houses the seventh and eighth grades with an average enrollment of 110 students. Seven, full-time certificated teachers serve an average of 19 students per class.

The middle school program at SCS was developed utilizing current research on educational best practices and principles of Christian spiritual development. As a result, the program is designed to meet the following goals:

Provide students with rigorous academic instruction fully integrated with scripture and a Christian worldview

When students see the connection between God’s word and challenging academic coursework, they’re better equipped to impact their neighbors, communities and the world around them.

Engage students in relevant learning experiences every day

Instruction that is timely and hands-on provides students with tools and transferable skills that enable them to use and value what they have learned. Students understand subject matter and see its applicability in the real world.


Foster Christ-like relationships with each other

As educators, we realize students will never care how much we know until they know how much we care. Jesus mentored his disciples by knowing them as people first. Through his love, they responded with a lifetime of devotion. Likewise, our commitment to relating to our students as fellow believers communicates their importance to us—and to God.

Our faculty and staff count it a privilege to prepare our middle school students to impact their world for Christ.
