Eighth Grade

Curriculum at a Glance

The eighth grade curriculum consists of the study of American History covering the time from the Revolutionary War to the Civil War.  The eighth grade also studies Physical Science and Pre-Algebra.  Our Literature series includes several anthologies - all based on various themes.  Throughout the series, we cover literary, grammar, and spelling skills.  Also, we incorporate these skills into novels that the students read throughout the quarter, including the YSU English Festival books.  We strive to meet the Common Core standards while incorporating technology into the learning environment. 


One of the biggest highlights of the eighth grade is Confirmation in the Spring of the year celebrated with the Bishop. The Eigth grade also goes to Washington DC in May.
