Middle School Overview
At Wilberforce, we believe the middle school years are more than a transition into the upper school.
During these distinct and formative years, students are challenged both academically, and in their character development. Middle school classes are conducted at an honors level.
We believe that middle school is a natural time for students take on a greater responsibility to serve in the community. Students are given the charge to initiate and lead service projects, both in class and outside of school.
Teachers in the middle school are gifted educators who understand this age group well, foster a community of learning, and mentor student by developing thoughtful relationships during this distinct time of their lives.

Head of Middle School
The Wilberforce School cultivates whole persons: intellectually, socially, physically, and spiritually. Learning in community, whether around the seminar table or in the laboratory, is a hallmark of our classes. In every class at Wilberforce, students apply habits of responsible stewardship, gentle justice, and self-discipline in their scholarship, their sports, and their service.
"While truth is truth however learned, the bearing of truth, the meaning of truth, the purpose of truth, even in the sphere of mathematics, seem entirely different to the Christian from that which they seem to the non-Christian; and that is why a truly Christian education is possible only when Christian conviction underlies not a part, but all, of the curriculum of the school."
