Picking up where the 6th grade left off, the 7th grade program marks "the middle of the middle" with an increase in academic expectations where students are encouraged to take control of their learning though better time management, organization and study skills.
In addition to the core subjects, students are exposed to a wide range of quarter classes including an in-depth study of Quakerism, the first class in a series of religion classes during the students tenure at Friends Academy. Lastly, use of technology becomes a staple within their program. This comes via classes in computer programming, lego robotics and various software applications used in all of the classes.
