INTERMEDIATE

It is our mission to take the love of Jesus Christ to the community by partnering with families to equip the whole student for their individual calling through a rich, experiential education.

The unique needs of fifth and sixth grade students requires a special learning space dedicated to them. Our Intermediate School, located in the Lion’s Den, features team teaching within their specialty in huddle-size classes. Students change classes in a small setting, have the privilege of managing their own locker, and take responsibility for their own assignments and homework.

School hours: 8:15am – 3:20pm (carpool begins at 8:00 a.m.)

Extended Hours available beginning at 7:30 a.m. and ending at 5:30 p.m. (extra fee)
