Middle School CYO Sports

For students in 6th – 8th grade, Everest participates in the Catholic Youth Organization which hosts a number of sporting leagues.

Middle School Club Opportunities

Our deans, formation instructors, and our teaching faculty have worked diligently to ensure that we are able to offer our students a solid slate of club opportunities. From this our students will benefit greatly – responding to leadership opportunities, honing their interpersonal skills, learning in a variety of modalities, gaining experience in various content areas, and receiving formation from our staff in an atmosphere beyond the classroom. Since many of the clubs are formed based on student interests and initiatives the club list may vary slightly from one year to the next. Examples of the clubs offered for grades 6-8 students are listed below.

  • Everest Business Club
  • Euchre Club
  • Pro Life Club
  • Lego League
  • Outdoor Club
  • Math Club
  • Yearbook Club
  • Chess Club

Middle School Events & Competitions

Academic competitions are available for students to develop intellect, excel in areas of strength, learn work ethic and measure their progress. Competition is a natural part of life and one that we believe is essential for fostering the development of the human person. In order to truly achieve success, Everest students will need to be able to master their triumphs and reconcile their defeats. The following academic competitions are held annually in order to give Everest students the opportunity to do just that.

  • Forensics Competition (October)
  • Spelling Bee (November)
  • Catholic Schools Week Competitions (January)
  • Catechism Contest (March)

Middle School Student Leadership

National Junior Honor Society

The Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society at Everest Academy inducts new members once each year in the winter. Any sixth, seventh, or eight grade student who meets the criteria of the Society for enrollment, cumulative grade point average, and character is eligible to apply for membership. The administration, faculty, and staff of the school then select those students who excel in the areas of character, leadership, citizenship and service. Because the NJHS is a service organization, its primary function is to serve the school and community in any way possible.

EA Cadet Program

Everest’s Cadet Program provides middle school students with the opportunity to volunteer in a younger classroom during their recess two days a week for a quarter. Leaders work on various tasks with the teacher and students in small groups, one-on-one and as a whole class. Duties include record-keeping, organizational tasks, arts and crafts, and miscellaneous preparations as directed by the teacher. The Cadet Program builds students into role models and instills the importance of character and confidence as Christ did.

EA Ambassadors Club

The EA Ambassador program is a leadership opportunity for those students who want to share their knowledge firsthand about the benefits of an Everest education. Members will be called upon to promote the school in different ways including hosting shadow students for a school day. Members will also volunteer at open houses or informational night at local schools or parishes.

EA Student Council

Everest Academy offers students in 6th – 8th grade the opportunity to run for and serve on Student Council. Four officer positions are offered; President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Apostolic Service Coordinator as well as four classroom representatives each school year. Students are elected by their peers and meet weekly to discuss needs and plan activities.
