9th-12th Grade Program
Our High School Bible class will use the Patterns of Evidence Quest curriculum to encourage the critical thinking necessary for students to discern the truth when the authority of the Bible is questioned. Quest takes students on a journey to ancient Egypt, back to the time of Israelite captivity and the Exodus. Through engaging classroom discussions, students will join the debate about the historical accuracy of this Biblical account. They will practice the command in scripture to “always be ready to give reason for the hope that is within you with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15).
Course credit: 1 hour in Histoirical Apologetics with additional work at home

This year our high school elective will be a STEM class. The goal of this class is to increase the critical thinking skills of each student through hands-on projects and challenges. Students will work in teams to creatively solve problems presented to them. They will explore various scientific principles through cooperative learning, such as Newton’s Laws, electricity, and astronomy.

Our Theater program is designed to introduce students to the different aspects of a theatrical presentation. We will use drama games, class discussions, and assignments to grow the student's acting skills while concurrently producing a short play. Students who are not interested in acting will have the option of designing costumes, sets, and props for the production and working as stagehands. We will work together to find the perfect spot for each student.
