Extracurricular Opportunities in the Middle School
Drama classes at Abiqua begin early and continue through middle school. This program allows students to dive into the lively and imaginative world of dramatic arts. Students learn theater games, improvisation, pantomime and performance techniques. Their annual performance involves a trip to a local theater for the viewing pleasure of the entire school.
Robotics deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots. The Robotics team is competes in the First Lego League Tournament. FIRST® LEGO® League introduces young people, ages 9 to 14* (grades 4-8), to the fun and excitement of science and technology. FLL combines the engineering challenge of a robotics competition with real-world problem solving and inventing. FLL team members learn science and technology skills at the same time as valuable employment and life skills.
Abiqua Academy is pleased to participate in The MATHCOUNTS Competition that helps bright minds reach their full potential. The Competition Series is ideal for students who have a talent and passion for math who need to be challenged. Students will engage in exciting, “bee-style” contests in which they will compete against and alongside other bright, motivated students. It’s the only competition program of its kind, with local, state and national levels, allowing students the opportunity to win hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships and prizes every year. Students enrolled in the sixth, seventh or eighth grade are eligible to participate in the MATHCOUNTS Competition Series.
