Southcrest Christian Junior High School focuses on an academic and spiritual preparation for high school in an environment that meets the specific needs of young adolescents. Course work is challenging but filled with opportunities for success as teachers work to meet the needs of all students through small group instruction, whole brain learning, differentiation woven together with a biblical worldview. Junior high students begin the day with pledges and pray and attend weekly chapel that focuses on worship and lessons geared to this specific age group. Eighth graders study Christian apologetics in Bible class and grapple with those difficult life questions common to the human experience.
Jr. High Retreat: Early in the school year the 7th and 8th graders spend two days away on retreat. This is a wonderful bonding time full of fun activities, food, worshiping, and devotions.
Quarterly Community Service: Students travel to various places in the community to offer assistance, to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Veteran's Day Program/Grandparents day: Students participate in this patriotic program through singing. This service is dedicated to both living and deceased veterans in the community. Grandparents are honored at the same time. A nice lunch is served to families and grandparents are encouraged to attend classes with students and share stories of the past.
Ft. Davis Trip: Every spring the 7th grade class takes a road trip to Ft. Davis. This is a fun and educational trip sponsored by the science and history departments. The students, teachers, and parents enjoy exploring the Ft. Davis Museum and the Star-gazing party.
Joyland Fun Day: The end of year party is held at Joyland. PATHS (Parents and Teachers Helping Students) bless the students with a day of food and fun times as we celebrate the ending of a great year.
