High School Program
Our high school serves students in grades 9-12. Because most of the core courses are combined (grade 9/10 and 11/12), most of these courses are taught in 2-year cycles.
Bible or Reformed Studies has been divided into 4 years: two years of Old Testament and two years of New Testament. Because of the combination grades the students stream into their freshman year wherever the Bible program is up to in the 4-year cycle.
The History/Geography program is divided as follows: World Geography, United States History, United States Government and History of Civilization. The textbooks used in these courses come from BJU Press.
English across the grades involves novel and play studies, writing, grammar, and readings from an anthology.
In grades 9/10, the students take Algebra 1 and Geometry. The math courses in 11th and 12th grade are separate classes. Students have the choice to take Algebra 2 (11), Pre-Calculus and Trigonometry (12) and/or Business Math.
Physical Science is studied in grade 9/10. For the juniors and seniors, a choice is made each year on what the majority would like to take: Chemistry, Physics, Biology, or Earth Science.
In addition to the core subjects, the 9/10 students take four half-credit courses: Computer Studies, Videography, Art and PE. The juniors and seniors take two mandatory half-credit courses: PE and Spanish.
To be eligible for graduation, the seniors must complete a Senior Project and receive a passing grade in Reformed Studies (Bible).
The juniors and seniors also have electives they can choose as part of their 7-credit-a-year course load. Life Skills (Home Ec) is the one teacher-led course available. The other choices include: Coaching (LYS), Student Tutor Experience, AutoCAD, Work Placement, Music, and a variety of online courses.
Further information on specific graduation requirements can be found in the Parent Handbook.
