First implemented during the 2014-2015 academic year, the Capstone provides an opportunity for our ninth graders to explore, and consider solutions to, issues that are present in today's society. We are so pleased to see so many of our passionate 9th graders involved in reviewing current issues and caring about the future of our world and society. Future leaders are being made here at Rectory!
Middle School (5-9)
Welcome to The Rectory Middle School, a community of educators committed to bringing out the best in each of our students. Rectory prides itself on taking every child where they are and nurturing them to realize their fullest potential. We do this through a dynamic program with student engagement as the cornerstone of our educational philosophy. In the classroom, through the arts, and on the athletic field, students are encouraged to stretch their intellectual, creative, and athletic limits. The result is a transformation that allows us to send forth into our world a confident, inquisitive, and independent global citizen.
Please feel free to contact me or inquire online regarding the above, and any other questions you may have about Rectory’s Middle School.

Using balsa wood, seventh graders build bridges in earth science class and then put them to a weight challenge. The purpose of the project is to learn basic engineering principles, teamwork, communication skills, and to understand how structures are made to resist earth forces like earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes.

The best part about my job is capturing all that we do on campus for social media, and I was so impressed with how students immerse themselves in a range of exciting winter electives. Click to read about Rectory's winter electives offerings in the middle school.
Throughout the day on Thursday, December 14, 2017, members of our community gathered in the library to take part in the Heart-y Party, Rectory School's party with heart. The atmosphere of the goodwill of the Heart-y Party was evident before, during, and after the gathering, and it helped spread that feeling of Rectory's efforts to reach out to others, as well.

The beginning of the winter term means new electives. We are fortunate this year to have award-winning musical artist (and Rectory tutor), Maria Sangiolo leading a new songwriting elective!
