High School Prep Setting them up for success today and tomorrow Intentional Academic Preparation Middle school students are learning to be increasingly independent in their academic study habits and are taking on more responsibility for their behavior. Students begin to discuss academic options after high school and are encouraged to attend Wesleyan’s annual on-site Christian college fair. Eighth grade students sit for the PSAT and prepare for high school course selection during our parent night hosted by the Director of College Counseling. Personal Growth All Wesleyan students are expected to abide by biblical principles when relating to and communicating with their peers, parents, and teachers. Our students are held accountable for their behavior in school, while participating in off-campus activities, and while online. Class Schedules Our students develop accountability as they keep track of daily assignments, weekly tests and quizzes, and quarterly projects. As they gain more independence in middle school, Wesleyan students can choose their own electives, with the support of our faculty, staff, and parents. Mentorship Our middle schoolers invest time with our elementary students through a dedicated reading buddies program. Middle School Student Ambassadors welcome new students to campus and help new friends adjust to their new school home. In addition, middle schoolers benefit from participating in various service projects and student leadership opportunities through athletic teams and other student clubs and organizations. Campus Safety A Safe Place to Learn and Grow You can take comfort in knowing that safety is a top priority on our K-12 campus, located in the heart of North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad area. Although all of our students are located on the same campus and under one roof, each school program has a dedicated area on our campus for its students. Safety measures include two full-time police officers, indoor/outdoor camera surveillance, secure entry points, and a parent/visitor check-in and screening process. We also participate in critical incident drills, weather emergency drills, and we are proud of our dedicated and trained, first responder team.
