Enabling students to maximize their God-given gifts and talents in a Christ-centered environment is the driving purpose of everything we do in the high school. Knowing each individual is gifted differently, we seek to achieve our goal by providing excellent opportunities in academics, arts, athletics, and co-curricular activities, all built upon a firm commitment to Jesus Christ. Regardless of individual interest level or academic strength, each student has the opportunity to cultivate his gifts and talents to the fullest potential.

Academically, the high school offers a wide range of curricular offerings challenging students to develop analytical abilities and problem-solving skills. With 18 Advanced Placement (AP) course offerings spanning the curriculum, students are challenged to pursue course content normally reserved for college. Honors courses, which are offered in every content area except Bible, provide additional academic challenges for students who wish to delve more deeply into a specific content area. The growing engineering program introduces students to the design and creation process in high demand throughout the modern business world. The Directed Studies program provides additional support for students with diagnosed learning needs.

Study abroad opportunities take our students around the globe to study literature, language, and culture on location. Recent trips include studies in England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Spain, Greece, Italy, and Turkey. Stateside, students have the opportunity to study oceanography, complete with a capstone field trip to the Florida Keys.

As is the case in the classroom, the high school offerings in the arenas of arts and athletics are built around the commitment of maximizing individual interests and talents. Whether in the weight room, on the stage, or on the field of competition, our coaches, directors, and teachers provide excellent training for our students built around Christ. While the work often results in titles and accolades, more importantly, each individual student learns important lessons in teamwork, commitment, accountability, and the pursuit of excellence in all things.

Academic Programs

List of 8 items.

  • Bible

    The Bible department takes the call of Matthew 10:16 as the placard of instruction, pedagogy, and vision. The church is the visible extension of God, and the Bible department considers itself the theological arsenal of both intellect and wisdom. Students completing this engaging Bible curricula will understand the world within the Bible, the reason for the Church created by the Bible, the robust reasons for theism, and the systematic implications of the Faith. 
  • Math

    The math department follows a traditional approach to its courses, with a sequence of Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and so on. Opportunities to advance oneself in math exist by doubling up in certain scenarios. Students are challenged to realize the beauty of mathematics that is all around us. As Galileo said, "Mathematics is the alphabet with which God has written the universe."
  • Science

    Few things in the world can provide students with as great an insight into God as Creator as the study of science. Science is the exploration of the physical and biological world around us. In addition to examining God’s craftsmanship throughout our world, students strive to learn critical skills such as problem-solving, experimental design, and analytical thinking through the lens of Scripture.
  • English

    The goal is to inspire students through process modeling and biblical integration to read closely, write stylistically, research effectively, and think strategically in order to best communicate wisdom and knowledge to a world hungry for truth.

Classroom teaching is reinforced with travel experiences to the countries where the languages are spoken.

    Social Studies courses strive to expose students to a global perspective through a historical lens and a Christian worldview. Students have opportunities to study geography, world history, U.S. history, economics, government and politics, and psychology at varying levels of rigor. Through four years of required study in the department, students gain a true appreciation for where we have been and where we are headed as Christian Americans on the world stage.

    Every student is required to complete a full year of health/fitness. Additionally, each student must also complete one full year of study in the arts. Other elective offerings, such as SAT prep, creative writing, engineering, and personal finance, offer students opportunities to delve into content not normally addressed in the traditional classroom setting.
  • Internships
