Grades 9-12 Curriculum

High school is a formative time as students leave their childhood behind and grow into the adult that God has prepared for them to be.  Increasing responsibilities and greater trust are two elements we inculcate in our high school students as they “grow in wisdom and stature and favor with God and men.”  On their journey to become mature in Christ, our students will encounter many personal, spiritual, academic, and social challenges.  Our goal is to present them mature in Christ by strengthening their resiliency and faith in the steadfast love of God as they meet these challenges.  Our comprehensive curriculum and high school distinctives will help prepare them to meet these and other future challenges and thrive.
 
The academic program builds in students a fundamental body of knowledge through a biblical worldview. We desire that our students become wise and virtuous followers of Christ, compassionate and critical thinkers, prepared to serve God in His redemptive work.

With classes of 15-25 students, students are challenged in their thinking, develop close relationships with one another and grow in their knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
