Junior High (Grades 7-8)
The Secondary program at Berean Christian School features an intentionally Christ-centered and Biblically-based curriculum while academically sound, intellectually challenging, and creatively varied. Berean Christian School enjoys an ethnically varied student population.
We at Berean believe God has uniquely created and gifted each student as He has purposed. As such, we try to present avenues to develop those gifts and talents by offering opportunities in art, music, drama, evangelism, community service, and athletics in a safe and encouraging environment; ESE services are also available. Each week students participate in chapel or Life Groups. Junior High is a transitional chapter in every student's life when academic foundations are solidified in preparation for success in high school.
Design and Modeling
Students will learn the design process as they construct a 3D model and then create a therapeutic toy for children with cerebral palsy. Students will learn the basics of wiring, engineering, design, and modeling.
Students will gain an introduction to computer science by developing a mobile app that will solve a real-world problem in the realm of health, environment, community service, or school culture.
Students create a robot, from circuits and legos, designed to complete a specific task (like traversing a course, picking up a ball, or throwing it in a goal, etc.) This robot and its students compete in a state tournament.
Introduction to Engineering (Engineering Essentials)
Students will be exposed to a breadth of different types of engineering and the multiple career opportunities for each as they solve engaging and challenging real-world problems like creating a natural relief center system or creating a solution to improve the safety and well-being of local citizens.
Students create a robot, from circuits and legos, that is designed to complete a specific task (like traverse a course, pick up a ball, throw it in a goal, etc.) This robot and its students compete in a state tournament.
