For the Whole of Their Life.

Student Learning

Due to the distinct characteristics of the Middle School age group it is important that teaching programs are based on the most current research and presented in a motivating way. Successful innovations within the Middle School include directly linking learning to real life issues, small nurturing class sizes and readily incorporating technology in learning.

We continue to be committed to providing relevant, challenging and provocative programs of study that engage students in meeting the syllabus requirements as well as reflecting the specific mission and goals of St Philip’s Christian College.
