Academics

Middle School

Across the country, schools are working to find educational approaches that will prepare their students for the changing world in which they will live and work. At Malvern, we are leading the way. Malvern students are provided with an education that is energizing and engaging, deeply relevant, and lasting in impact.
In the Middle School, we combine Augustinian values with a curriculum that reflects the best and latest in educational thinking. It's the perfect combination for boys at an age of pivotal growth and change. Here, they are part of a community founded in Truth, Unity, and Love, while they are immersed in lessons that deeply engage their energy, imagination, and eagerness to learn.

A Malvern education is not only about "putting things to memory," it is about developing a practical imagination, asking, "how is what I am learning related to what I already know and what new ways of thinking about a topic are preparing me to learn more?" We place a high value on the importance of questions - allowing wonder, curiosity, and imagination to shine through. As a result, students are asked to create, analyze, and evaluate far more than they are asked to memorize.

Designing resourceful and sustainable projects triggers a student's practical imagination that proposes what we can make with one another and for others. Our students are building and designing with a higher purpose - to serve others.
