6th Grade Exploratory Wheel

All students who enter the CAC Middle School at Grade 6 are introduced to six exploratory courses in their first year. This ensures that individuals who make a commitment to the study of a World Language and a full-year music elective in Grade 6 will still share in similar experiences that may focus their elective interests in Grades 7 or 8.

Rotation: Every six weeks.


Health Education The goal of the Grade 6 Health Education exploratory is to enable the students to develop a greater awareness of the everyday behaviors and choices that affect their own well being. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own actions and decisions. The main units cover nutrition, body systems, peer pressure, stress management, and more.
