Welcome to 8th Grade


“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity.” I Timothy 4:12


Dear Parents, 

As the eighth grade studies together, it is our prayer that students will see God’s fingerprints throughout history, wonder at the marvels of his creation, recognize Biblical truths in literature, strengthen their faith, and invite Him to be actively involved in writing the story of their lives!

Serving together in Christ,

Mrs. Montgomery 
8th-Grade Homeroom, English/Latin, Literature, US History, and DC Trip 
Mr. Wiley 
8th-Grade Bible, Math, Science, and Health
