Students are introduced to a new HCA campus and a new approach to learning in 6th grade. They begin rotating classes and explore learning from different teaching styles. In core classes, students develop a deeper understanding of topics introduced and covered at the Intermediate level as outlined in the Archdiocesan Unified Standards. All 6th-grade students are required to take a Study Skills course to develop the executive function and organizational skills required for success in Middle School. Spanish, Art, and PE are continued in 6th grade and content is scaffolded appropriately. They begin taking elective courses to explore new and different topics that interest them.
