Middle School Program of Studies

Dear Students and Parents,

Welcome to the Cairo American College Middle School.

The purpose of this webpage is to introduce you to our planned Program of Studies for the 2017-2018 academic year. The Middle School strives to ensure that each student achieves his or her educational and personal potential. Our learning community works hard to do so in the context of the extensive cognitive, social, emotional and physical development that a student will experience during these early years of adolescence.

The Program of Studies reflects high expectations for academic achievement. The program also represents a deep understanding of the importance of a caring and supportive learning environment during these middle years. We aim to provide structure and clear boundaries in our learning program, while at the same time, encouraging exploration. Our goal is to take advantage of the intellectual power of this group of learners and their drive to belong, while appreciating the different gifts and needs of the individual.

On the following pages you will find descriptions of the core classes, elective courses and exploration opportunities. Students enroll in eight courses that meet across a rotating two-day schedule. Five of the eight are required: Physical Education, Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Three are electives or explorations from the World Languages, Visual and Performing Arts, Technology Education, Service Learning and other special interest areas.

The means for developing your child's academic program for 2017-18 is the course registration card and this Program of Studies website. The current Middle School counselor, Rosanna Herrera, will facilitate this process in collaboration with the students, teachers and parents. Should you have any questions about the registration process, please call, e-mail or visit the Middle School administrative offices.
