Middle School

Middle School At A Glance

Every middle school student is included in a group of students known as an “Advisory”


Advisory, or CavTime, a central part of the CCES Middle School experience, is where students learn about themselves, each other, and the greater world. It is a time to focus on observing and practicing The Cavalier Way in their lives and our greater community. CavTime seeks to create cohesion among the Lower School, Middle School and Upper School by equipping our students for entrance into and exit from the middle school.
Every middle school student is included in an advisory group of students, which is facilitated by an advisor (a teacher at their grade level). That advisor greets his or her advisees first thing every morning, spends time with them during study hall, and leads a 40 minute CavTime session once a week.
At CCES, we know that our students are whole individuals for whom all aspects of life are connected. CavTime programming intentionally nurtures and celebrates our students’ development as young persons of character. CavTime is a time to focus on respecting others, who we are and who we want to become.

School Counseling Program

The mission of the CCES Middle School Counseling program is to encourage the highest level of student achievement through academic and personal/social domains.  In partnership with students, teachers, parents and a caring community, the school counselor helps nurture students’ intellectual development, personal integrity, sense of community and self-worth, while promoting an understanding and appreciation of the diversity of persons.
