Middle School STUDIO

Ages 11-14  (Grades 6th - 8th)

Each person who enters St. Jose has the potential to realize God’s plan for their life and impact the world.  (1 Chr 28)

Junior Apprenticeships, real-world challenges, and a personalized learning plan

that develop a sense of self and role as a true change maker.

Young people in the Middle School Studio begin to embark into the real world, with the thrilling opportunities and responsibility that come with it, including apprenticeships each year with heroes in the community.  As young people grow into adolescence, their impact multiplies.  Now, projects have real clients, skills are developed with rigor, and discussions embrace a new maturity.  The studio offers a higher level of freedom, as well as a safe place to test your limits, failing early, cheaply and often.

A Day at St. Jose


This time is used to begin the day with scripture, prayer, reflection, meditation, affirmations, and goal setting.


Time is allocated for core skill mastery, such as reading, writing, math, and theology. Most of this core skill mastery is self-paced using eLearning software.


Deep Socratic discussions about heroes, history and self governance to hone critical thinking skills and the ability to powerfully think, write and speak. 


Hands-on projects to master the tools and skills needed to solve problems in the real world. Young people prepare to showcase their product at the end of each cycle.
