Middle School

At Centner Academy, the learning seeps beyond the classrooms’ walls and into the real world. Our teachers craft lessons that are authentic, complex, relevant, and engaging. Our middle schoolers do real work as authors, artists, inventors, explorers, athletes, and mathematicians. Our students are treated with respect and held accountable as we strive to cultivate grit and harness intrinsic motivation. With mindfulness and emotional intelligence at the helm, we believe that student learning is more accessible and profound. 

Through an interdisciplinary and inquiry-based program, students discover skills in academic disciplines while learning to grapple with the unknown, embrace multiple perspectives, and create innovative solutions. Students explicitly develop social and emotional skills that promote self-confidence, emotional intelligence, positive communication, and collaboration with classes like Life Skills. 

Our students are encouraged to not only find but to use their voice. We want our middle schoolers to celebrate accomplishments and understand failure, as it is always a learning lesson. We believe that by highlighting real-world connections, reinforcing empathy, and keeping high standards, our students will graduate inspired to take-on high school and beyond. We believe empathetic, gritty, and confident citizens possess the ability to change the world.
