During the 6th, 7th and 8th grades at any school, students face the challenge of transitioning into adolescence. At Foothills Christian Middle School, we whole-heartedly believe that this transition involving physical changes, intellectual development, and spiritual formation can be, with wise and loving guidance, a positive, even course-altering season in a student’s life. Teachers take great care to impart sound biblical wisdom during Bible class and desire to help shape the students’ appetites for the things of the Kingdom of God.
The Education Specialist and Resource program at Foothills Christian Middle School, is a service for students who may struggle to learn in the traditional classroom environment. Our goal is for each student to become a developing and independent learner who knows how to utilize their God given gifts and talents.
At FCMS, our Education Specialists provide a service for students who may struggle to learn in the traditional classroom environment. Individualized assessment and intervention are offered to develop the learning skills necessary to be a successful and independent student. Our specialists do their best to accommodate and adjust BJU Curriculum according to the students learning abilities.
We can not provide a 1 on 1 academic resource in the classroom, as we do not have the resources to accommodate a 1 on 1 learning need.
Our Education Specialist & Resources Program is not covered in the cost of tuition. All testing, evaluations, additional assistance, and outside tutoring have additional costs.
Our graded course-work includes the following subjects: Bible, Math, Language Arts (grammar, literature, vocabulary, and writing), Science, Introduction to Spanish, Computers and Life Skills.
Bob Jones offers an e-textbook for most updated curriculum. For an extra $25.00, students have three-way access (desktop, online, and mobile) to their textbooks for 12 months. This allows students to leave heavy textbooks at school, lightening the loads they carry to and from school. It also means they will not miss any work if they “accidentally” leave books at school.
The subjects that offer an e-textbook option are:
- 6th grade: Science, Math and Literature
- 7th & 8th grades: Science, History, Fundamentals of Math, Pre-Algebra, and Literature
