What opportunities does Cascade Christian Junior High offer my student?
CCJH has a solid academic program while believing that the best education involves the whole child. Therefore, we also offer classes on Leadership skills, Music, and elective choices. Our school offers a unique program that we call "Impact Term".

Junior High IMPACT term (formerly known as E-Term) is dedicated time set aside to train our students in servant leadership.  They participate in a couple of local service projects in the greater Puyallup area, benefitting our community.  In addition, students are given the opportunity to enjoy some enrichment classes (in the past these have included rocketry, photoshop, hiking, biking, scrapbooking, etc.).  More information will be coming later in the year with this IMPACT term’s offerings.

What are the Leadership Opportunities in Junior High?
Cascade Christian Junior High believes that leadership development is critical for all of our students. In grades 7 and 8 we have a nine week leadership class which is designed to help each student gain an understanding of the qualities of a leader and how God has gifted them to be a leader. The students learn a variety of skills which they put into practice with practical projects. Our Junior High students also have a Leadership Impact Period where group dynamics skills, and meeting expectations are discussed along with other things that help them to lead effectively in school, home, church and the community.

How do I get involved in the parent group?
