Our program is designed to balance an advanced academic schedule with activities that nurture students’ social, spiritual and physical development in preparation for life. Students continue their development in Biblical reasoning and are challenged to practice articulating and defending their biblically reasoned positions on matters our world is currently facing.
The fruit of God’s work is evident in our high school students. Having planted seeds of Christian education (elementary) and watered the seed (middle), we begin reaping a harvest at the high school level. Students display original thinking and become solution-oriented by applying biblical principles to life’s problems. Having acquired a degree of Christian self-government, they are now in a position to impact the world for Christ.
The curriculum offers honors courses for those students who wish to pursue advanced course work. Honors courses reflect a weighted grade point average upon completion.
The purpose of the Apprenticeship is to provide high school juniors with a one-week experiential encounter in the marketplace or ministry with a professional or craftsman within a chosen profession, art or trade. Students research, observe, participate and evaluate their experiences under the guidance of the high school advisor and the Apprenticeship sponsor. Students research a chosen career field, develop a personal resume, make application, arrange for an interview, and prepare to participate in the workplace. The apprentice must interview the sponsor, maintain an observation and task log, and present an oral report and written response describing their experience.
The purpose of the high school thesis is to guide the Principle Approach® senior through the experience of developing, researching, writing and defending a personal position on a worthy idea in a way that manifests his Biblical worldview and Christian scholarship, thus equipping the student for a lifetime of presenting and defending his faith and worldview. Each student is assigned an advisor who walks the student through the process of researching and writing a thesis and assists in preparing for the oral presentation and defense. The thesis research paper and oral presentation are graded and recorded on the student’s permanent record.
