Junior High

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

At Tacoma Baptist, we partner with parents to help each child successfully navigate the critically important Junior High years, helping students to become assured young adults. We provide a strong academic program where rigorous math, English, history, and science courses challenge students.  Choir, life skills, photography, and other electives round out an engaging selection of courses.

Students are immersed in an environment that helps them strengthen their relationship with Christ. Daily Bible classes, weekly chapels, and opportunities for servant leadership encourage students to make their faith their own. Junior High students grow as leaders by becoming class officers and taking part in service opportunities on campus and throughout our community. A variety of Junior High athletic programs allows students to develop leadership skills on the court as well as in the classroom.

TBS faculty and staff are committed to fostering the academic and spiritual growth of every child. Teachers and students come together to form a safe, caring, and intentional Christian community where young people are known and valued.
