Middle School (Grades 6-8) Program

Pflaum Vision

Our Middle School program is a space where our middle schoolers find answers to their questions about their faith, create solid relationships with other youth in our parish community, and experience Jesus in a profound way.

First Day of Class

Sunday, October 16 from 8:30-9:45am at St. John Paul the Great Academy (formerly known as St. Peter/St. Francis School) 360 Prospect St. Torrington, CT 06790. We meet weekly, followed by Family Mass at St. Francis Church at 10:00am.

Teaching Curriculum

Our curriculum, Visions, emphasize social justice, moral reasoning, and service for junior-high students through current-interest articles, life-dilemma stories, and real Christian life examples. Discussion starters help young teens explore links between today’s issues, the Sunday readings, and their own lives.

Registration for 2022-2023 is due by Sunday, September 25. Registrations after this date will incur a $15.00 late fee and depend on availability in our classrooms. Our goal is to never leave a child out of the programs; however, due to limited space and teachers, we have limitations with enrollment. 

We welcome and are delighted to accept all students; however, no walk-ins will be accepted on the first day of class. Students need to have been pre-registered and assigned to a class list to attend the first day of class—no exceptions to this rule.
