Middle School Program


The middle school curriculum will required integrated learning that is organized into coherent sequences around broadly conceived career clusters. Career development experiences, as well as academic and occupational studies, are assumed elements of an integrated school-to-work curriculum. In fact neither academic nor occupational education alone provides all students with the skills, problem solving, reasoning, or the interactive learning necessary for further education and for high-wage employment. Within the context of Camden City Schools' middle school programs we envision a curriculum that is meaningfully integrated, experientially grounded and that continually demonstrates to students how education applies to real life.

Family and Consumer Science (FACS)
Course Description: The FACS course is designed to provide students with opportunities to learn life skills, food and nutrition skills, job readiness/awareness, and basic concepts in the areas of clothing and textiles. Students learn within an integrated approach in which academic learning and workplace competencies will be linked to promote career development, as well as to provide contextual, real world learning experiences.

Business Technology
Course Description: The Business Technology course is an articulated six through eight program that focuses on the Microsoft Office applications. It begins with keyboarding and expands to Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, Power Point and fundamentals of HTML. It provides students with exploratory experiences in the area of office systems technology with a curriculum that is articulated with the business programs at the high school level.

Course Description: The Technology course focuses on skills and competencies in the areas of construction, communication, manufacturing, and transportation. Students and teachers explore the above areas through the use of modular technology, hands-on activities, and work-based exploratory learning activities. These will provide students opportunities to apply academic concepts and strengthen the occupational skills necessary for building their capacity to choose a career program at the high school level and beyond.
