6th-8th GradeMiddle School

NorthPointe Christian Middle School is about understanding students in grades 6th-8th and integrating Christian Faith into every aspect of their school day. Both our English and Spanish Immersion programs successfully prepare student for High School.

Prepared to be their best

We recognize and acknowledge that young people have a powerful need to belong. Kids are God’s gift to all of us, and we are God’s gift to kids. Together we will make a united effort to prepare your child spiritually, academically, physically, and emotionally for the challenges of life, so that each child can reach his or her full potential to impact their world for Christ.

Principal's CornerMegan Willink

“I love working at NPC! It truly feels like family. I love getting to know students and learning how incredibly special God has made each one of them. I am humbled that I have the amazing opportunity to point students to the cross on a daily basis and help each of them see their value. I feel privileged to partner with staff and parents who want to equip students to impact their world for Christ.”

– Megan Willink, Middle School Principal

6th Grade Bridge Year

6th Grade at NorthPointe is a bridge-building year between Elementary and Middle School. Students move as a class unit primarily between two classrooms. Our veteran homeroom teachers lovingly guide 6th grade students through the academic rigor of middle school and the emotional and social challenges that arise with entering your teen years. 6th grade takes an overnight class trip early in the year to bond as a class and create unity among returning and new NorthPointe students. Specials classes include art, Spanish, and PE. Students can also opt to take band, orchestra, or study hall.

Enriching Activities

Middle School is an exciting season of firsts.

Academically Equipped

Our educational program strives to challenge students in all academic areas. The middle school encourages self-discipline and responsibility as students collaborate with peers, solve problems, prepare for tests and projects, and develop relationships with teachers and peers. An emphasis on project-based learning and authentic instruction allows students to learn through real-life, hands-on ways. Biblical integration occurs throughout all curriculum.

Grounded in Faith

Young people need teachers who are active spiritual role models and encourage students to use the Bible as the measuring stick for evaluating everything they see and hear. Our middle school staff is committed to leading them through this time of transition, and to help them think critically and Biblically about the world around them. Chapels are held twice per week where students have the opportunity to discover who Christ is in a personal way. Small groups help personalize faith and allow students to go deeper with peers.

Supportive Community

Community is the heart of NPC. The culture of belonging is evident and students are known and loved. Parent volunteer opportunities and school-wide events boost families’ involvement. A positive peer environment is fostered in a variety of ways.  One example is Students With A Purpose, a program in which teachers recognize when students are helping, supporting and encouraging others.

Enriching Activities

Middle School is an exciting season of firsts, from lockers and school plays, class trips to competitive athletic teams and performing arts groups. These are the years when students explore new things, learn new skills and become passionate about interests they’ve never tried before. Yearly class trips include 6th Grade Camp, 7th grade Chicago excursion, and 8th grade Washington D.C. trip. A weekly Cool Class supports emotional development and touches on topics such as career opportunities, healthy relationships, and wellness. A week-long January-term includes field trips and unique hands-on learning.
