The Gaston Christian Middle School Program works in partnership with families to meet the developmental need of students in grades 6-8. The middle school years are years of change as students leave behind elementary school and prepare for the rigors of high school.

To encourage families as they navigate these years of uncertainty, middle school teachers work diligently in multi-disciplinary teams to help meet the spiritual, academic, emotional, and physical challenges of this energetic age group.

An eight-period day offers various academic core subjects including Bible, English, history, math and science as well as opportunities to explore course offerings in the Fine Arts. An elective program on Wednesday afternoons provides Fine Arts, life application and STEM activities.

Weekly chapel programs bring the student body together for corporate praise and worship and biblical teaching. Students are also involved in activities designed to build Christian character, promote team building, and serve in community and international projects throughout the year.

Student life in the middle school is enhanced through class field trips, activities sponsored by the Student Government Association, Spirit Week, and participation in the Gazette Spelling Bee and the Geography Bee. A full range of athletic opportunities is also available: boys and girls basketball, soccer, and tennis; baseball, volleyball, cheerleading; co-ed cross country, swimming, and track.
