Middle School at Selwyn: The Academy

middle school

The curriculum at our Middle School level recognizes the uniqueness of the early adolescent experience and aims to help develop the whole student with consideration for the physical, emotional, and social development that occurs during this time in a child’s life.

Our Argyle private middle school classes are well-balanced, including everything from math, language arts, science, and history to computer science, Spanish to physical education. Students may also choose enrichment courses such as art or drama for their electives, and are encouraged to explore their creative and intellectual interests.

Through this rigorous and varied curriculum, the student government organization, and our Perspectives Travel Program, Middle School students are given the tools to approach new experiences and are taught the important, lifelong values of personal responsibility, mutual respect, and a healthy curiosity to understand and interact with the world around them.

Curriculum

Seventh through Eighth Grade

During these two years, we concentrate on interdisciplinary, project-based learning. As Middle School is a time of tremendous physical, emotional and academic change, we focus on the process of learning as much as the content learned.

What you will see:

All Middle School students will also take art, drama, music and Spanish.

Take the First Steps Towards Securing Your Future

Selwyn’s college prep program helps students and parents navigate the sometimes overwhelming college selection and application process. Our goal is for each student to find the college that will allow him or her to continue to develop the passions and interests they discovered at our Argyle Independent School.

The academic advisors involved in Selwyn college prep are all Upper School teachers with extensive experience in college prep, and many have worked with highly selective colleges and independent schools across the country. Because we understand that the college selection process is highly individualized, these advisors meet separately with each student, providing them with customized guidance throughout the process, which begins in eighth grade.

We look forward to working with your family at our college preparatory school and encourage you to reach out to us if you have any questions concerning college preparation for your student.
