Eighth Grade

The eighth grade year completes the process begun in sixth grade. Students are expected to demonstrate significant independence and proficiency in all academic areas. The eighth grade year also brings a number of exciting events.

A week-long environmental science and teamwork field trip to the Chesapeake Bay. Trips to the Holocaust Museum, Martha’s Table, and a range of DC metro area spots are also built into our year.

The sealing of the eighth grade time capsule and the eighth grade closing ceremony celebrate the end of the girls’ years in the Middle School and the beginning of their success in the Upper School.
