The Theology of the Body for Teens Middle School program is divided into 8 unique segments that reflect the pedagogical approach of John Paul II’s revolutionary teaching. The program gives sixth through eighth graders the answers to their tough questions concerning their bodies, their sexuality, and their future. The program has been designed specifically as a catechetical program to fit perfectly into Catholic schools, youth ministry, CCD, and homeschooling settings. Theology of the Body for Teens Middle School Edition has been granted the Imprimatur. A High School Edition is also available.
The Theology of the Body for Teens: Middle School Edition is beautiful from beginning to end - filled with the richest of truths. The lessons truly build on one another catechetically, while gently leading middle school students into the beautiful teachings of the Theology of the Body. One of my favorite aspects of the program is the way it reveals and instills the virtues so needed at this time in their lives and faith development. It is age appropriate, culturally relevant, and so much more.Meaghan Hildebrandt

This is an engaging, age-appropriate, and sound, systematic presentation... In light of the cultural challenges confronting young people to live chastely, it is my hope that the Theology of the Body for Teens: Middle School Edition will engage the hearts, minds, and choices of young people and their parents in embracing Christ's invitation for chaste living.Mark Ciesielski,

The group leader works through carefully designed questions and readings in preparation for the DVD presentation.
Highly engaging presentations go deeper into the lesson. All lessons exercise great pastoral sensitivity. Guys and girls only segments too.
Small break out groups for guys and girls allow for candid discussion of the material.
