Our eighth grade program helps students prepare for the transition into high school, with all of the excitement and challenges that experience brings. Students will discuss a wide range of topics, from the changing impact of technology to healthy relationships to preparing for college. This program meets approximately once per month.

By the end of the year, eighth grade students who attend regularly should be able to:

  • Articulate the impact of clearly understanding rules and expectations.
  • Evaluate their interpersonal relationships and acknowledge helpful and hurtful people in their lives.
  • Differentiate between consent and “everything else.”
  • Give examples of how people curate their public image of self.
  • List at least three methods for coping with something stressful or depressing that would work for them.
