Life in the FPD middle school is exciting and active! Caring faculty work with each student to boost his or her confidence and continue to prepare him or her for the academic demands of high school and college.
Students & Faculty
Sixth-grade classes are clustered together in the middle school building to facilitate a smooth transition from the elementary school. Core 7th and 8th grade classes share a hall with easy access to the high school, as many middle school students take high school courses.
All FPD middle school students receive a convertible tablet PC with an extensive suite of productivity and educational software. The learning management system allows teachers to deliver content and students to submit assignments electronically. Students maintain their notes and assignments in digital notebook portfolios that teachers can access for monitoring student learning and providing feedback.

Service & Spiritual Development
FPD partners with over 100 agencies in Middle Georgia to provide students with face-to-face time with underserved and distressed populations. Service learning is also integrated into the curriculum. At the annual Middle School Service Day, the whole school is engaged in service across the region for a day. Middle school students also have the opportunity to grow in their walk with Christ through daily Bible courses and weekly chapel services.
The FPD middle school curriculum is designed to prepare students well for the rigorous studies of high school while fostering a love of learning with creative, engaging educational opportunities. Download the 2018-2019 Curriculum Guide
