South Olive Christian Middle School offers a comprehensive educational program designed to prepare students spiritually and academically for success in life…beyond graduation. The programs of study fully equip students with biblically-based critical thinking skills—students are engaged in active learning while they are taught how to become lifelong students. Our graduates know how to think deeply and work effectively.
Our class sizes make the learning environment ideal for any learner type, advanced or otherwise. Our unique middle school structure uses expanded courses in science, social studies, math, language arts, music, art, and Bible. Music, art and computer training are offered as part of the regular school schedule. Along with this strong college-prep curriculum, which exceeds the requirements of the state of Michigan, South Olive is blessed to have a state of the art technology program (Chromebooks for each student, at home and school). Each middle school student is provided with the use of a Chromebook computer for both school and home use. We equip students to use technology to impact the world for Christ and to be lifelong learners.
We also offer performing arts programs, award-winning athletics, foreign language, mentoring opportunities, mission trips, and community service activities. Students plan a yearly trip for real-life educational application of their studies. Robotics, STEM projects, applied science, reader and writer’s workshop, intensive application of real life skills within the areas of economics, civics, geography, history, and social studies occur daily. Regular field trips bring education to life and make learning current and interesting. Big school opportunities in a small school, offered to everyone instead of a select few.
One of our most important tasks at South Olive Christian School is to instill integrity and honor in our students. A cornerstone of this school – after a deeply instilled love of God and service– is trust and honesty. Our goal is not for our students to just have faith, but to be faith increasing! The goal is to build a strong, Christian young adult who is able to go into the world with a heart for God, a mind trained in discernment, and an unchanging standard by which to live. The relationship that children have with their Lord and Savior can be developed and strengthened through the guidance of master teachers and positive peer groups.
