Middle School Skill Development

Strong reading and writing skills are essential in almost every aspect of life, including high school, ACT/SAT, college, and beyond.
The Reading/Writing portion of the class focuses on:
  • Developing a student’s reading skills through challenging literary works, including by such literary giants as Mark Twain, Jack London, J. R. R. Tolkien, and H.G. Wells.

  • Bettering their critical reading skills through standardized tests such as the SSAT, ISEE, SAT, and ACT.

  • Improving their writing skills with creative and persuasive writing prompts.

  • Building functional and precise vocabulary through challenging word lists.

  • Expanding their grammar knowledge with a thorough overview of English grammar, syntax, and phrasing conventions.
