Fact or Fiction: You want to stay connected with your child during the middle school years.

It’s not a trick question! Mom, Dad — we know you want to be there for your child and support them during this season of exciting changes. Middle school can be full of awkward challenges as your pre-teen experiences unprecedented growth. They are gaining independence, and you’re trying to figure out how to maintain an active role in their life.

That’s why we put together this guide, to help parents like you who are trying to be intentional about your relationship with your child. It has real facts about middle schoolers (did you know that middle schoolers go through more brain growth than any other school-age child?), and offers strategies to engage your student as they grow academically, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

At Fredericksburg Christian School, our team of education experts is here to help you as you transition into these exciting middle school years. Please let us know if you have questions about our middle school program, or how FCS can be a good fit for your family. Schedule a tour with our admissions team to learn more. Or, you can request more information here..

Please know that enrollment is often limited as we strive to keep classes small. Applications open each October, and we encourage early application.
