8th Grade

Massanutten's curriculum for 8th grade cadets is constructed to help young cadets establish leadership and confidence. 8th grade cadets have an exciting program with a full academic schedule to meet the needs of all.
All 8th grade cadets will take mathematics (based on level), English, science, history, STEM, art, JROTC, physical education, and an option for band. STEM is incorporated into the science curriculum to give cadets a wide view of STEM education. 

Our curriculum is designed to help your child achieve maximum success by providing a strong educational foundation and individualized attention. A varied and rigorous academic schedule will be provided for each cadet which includes: 
  • A core curriculum focuses on reading, writing, history, science, JROTC, foreign lanuguage, and mathematics. 
  • Electives in Art, Music, and STEM 
  • Small class size of 10 students 
  • Leadership structure 
8th grade cadets participate in the same daily routine as high school cadets, such as squad jobs, drill, and inspections. And, as a parent, you will have 24-hour access to your cadet's grades online.

You know your child can do more but is not getting the attention needed in their current environment to reach their full potential. We know that choosing the right school for your child can be difficult because each child is so unique. We believe students should experience school as it should be, a place where children are educated in an environment that leads them to thrive and encourages their maximum potential.
