Coeducational College Preparatory Day School serving Grades 5-12

Academic Program

Seabury Hall's rigorous curriculum is designed not only to prepare students for college and beyond but to empower students to stretch their limits as well as strengthen existing talents and interests.

Grades 6-8

As the entry-level experience, the sixth-grade curriculum is designed to move students into the expectations, opportunities, and vision of Seabury Hall. Emphasizing interdisciplinary activities and carefully structured challenges that tap student interest and enthusiasm for learning, sixth grade lays the foundation for the major disciplines to be pursued throughout a Seabury career. In order to establish a solid beginning, the first quarter is not graded. Although progress is documented and not reported we will have an extensive conference with each family to share strengths and areas for improvement. This provides the student with a period of time to develop an appropriate routine and foundation without the pressures of grades. An interdisciplinary learning portfolio completes the year, including a reflection evaluating the sixth-grade journey and establishing seventh-grade goals.

The seventh-grade curriculum reinforces the study habits introduced in the sixth grade and teaches students the basic ¨habits of thought¨ associated with the different disciplines they will encounter in their upper school college-preparatory program in a developmentally appropriate context.

The eighth-grade curriculum provides a transition into the upper school by reinforcing the fundamental skills and concepts necessary for success in Upper School coursework in all disciplines. In addition, a final synthesis of research skills is provided in the second-semester eighth-grade interdisciplinary project centered around a student's chosen subject of personal interest. This project is required for graduation from the Middle School.
