Private Middle School in Tampa, FL
The middle school years are a tough time for most kids. Their bodies are changing; they're suddenly too old for toys but too young to fit in with the teens and adults. Because this is the time when moral character tends to go downhill, it's important to enroll children in a place with people who will look out for them. So if you're looking for a private middle school in Tampa, FL who does things a little different, then you have found your place.
At Tampa Bay Christian Academy we've blown up the idea of middle school, moving 6th grade to our lower school program - where they can mature and learn to lead and adding our 7th and 8th grade students to our Upper School where they can be mentored by high school leaders, challenged by high school courses and encouraged by loving staff. Your child will learn in an environment that promotes kindness and caring and they will always have someone to turn to during this time. When our students finish private 8th grade, they don't have to worry about finding or fitting in at another school - they continue on to our high school.
Our curriculum follows a college prep sequence and integrates Bible studies into every subject. Students develop knowledge, memorization, understanding, and real-life application of Scripture in a manner suitable for their age groups. Many of our private middle school age students take advanced courses with their 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade classmates earning high school credit earlier and preparing them to excel academically. Students progress naturally into our college prep program, where 95% of our students have gone to college after graduation and most receive scholarships as well.
