9-12th Grade

We are excited to announce a new high school program this year that will include several course options. In order to participate in our high school program we require students to stay for the whole day, enroll in the Bible course, and sign up for at least one full semester course or 2 one semester courses. Study hall will be provided for each period of the high school day. 


“You will know God better,” the stated goal of the 2023 study, Foundations in Faith, by Israel Wayne. This rich full-year journey into foundational doctrines published by MasterBooks Curriculum, will have our high school students thinking, reasoning, and delving into Scripture together. Topics range from what is church doctrine, how do I know the Bible is true, introduction to creeds, the Holy Spirit, the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, to salvation, justification and sanctification, an introduction to catechisms, and much, much more. The curriculum is from a Protestant bent but does not seek to convince students of one particular denominational viewpoint. Peppered throughout the course are spotlights on historical church figures such as Martin Luther, and missionaries such as Hudson Taylor, Dawson Trotman, Lottie Moon and others. We will memorize Scripture together, pray together, and be challenged with thought- provoking readings, questions, worksheets, key vocabulary, and a variety of other learning activities. Students will be required to complete light-medium homework outside of class and regularly participate in class discussions and activities.

  - This course can be used as 1/2 credit elective with some additional work provided by the parent.



This full-year high school art course will challenge your students to build on, refine, and combine their skills to create imaginative works or art. They will learn how to thoughtfully plan their project, and see it evolve from concept to creation. Students will expand on and refine their skills by learning and practicing several different techniques, while exploring a variety of materials including charcoal, pastels, paint, water color, and more. They will work on creating interesting arrangements within their work, focusing on composition, space, balance, visual paths, and unity. Several artists will be highlighted throughout the course.

     - This course can be used to cover a 1/2 of a credit in Art with additional work provided by the teacher or the parent. 



In this unique and engaging full-year course, students will act as engineers who are given the challenge to design laparoscopic surgical tools. After learning about human anatomy and physiology of the abdominopelvic cavity, especially as it applies to laparoscopic surgery, students learn about the mechanics of elastic solids, which is the most basic level of material behavior. Then, they explore the world of fluids and learn how fluids react to forces. Next, they combine their understanding of the mechanics of solids and fluids to understand viscoelastic materials, such as those found in the human body. Finally, they learn about tissue mechanics, including how collagen, elastin and proteoglycans give body tissues their unique characteristics. In the culminating hands-on activity, student teams design their own prototypes of laparoscopic surgical robots—remotely controlled, camera-toting devices that must fit through small incisions, inspect organs and tissue for disease, obtain biopsies, and monitor via ongoing wireless image-taking. They use a (homemade) synthetic abdominal cavity simulator to test and iterate the prototype devices.  

     - This course can be used as 1/2 credit in Technology or Science. No prerequisites required. 

Drug Awareness 

In this one-semester (Fall) course, we will be using the Mind Matters series, developed by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), part of the National Institutes of Health. “Mind Matters” is designed to help students understand the biological effects of drug misuse on the brain and body, along with identifying how these drug-induced changes affect both behaviors and emotions.  There is no more important time to address these issues than adolescence, when they are forming opinions about the health risks of drugs. The goal of this discussion-based course will be to help students understand the physical reality of drug use as well as inspire curiosity about neuroscience. 


  - This course can be used as 1/2 credit in Health with some additional work provided by the parent.


High school PE will include one-semester (Spring) of Volleyball. The goal of this class is to provide students with physical activity while learning skills for successful group or team play. This class will be a great opportunity for students to work towards their high school PE requirement, while developing team building skills, exercising, and having a great time with friends. 

- This course can be used as 1/4 credit in PE.

Study Hall

Students with free periods between their classes will be required to attend study hall. Study Hall is a place where your students may work on school work from their co-op classes or from home. Students are required to respect others by being quiet and working diligently during the first 45 minutes, after which they will be given the last 15 minutes to take a break and talk quietly with their friends. A study hall monitor will be present to maintain the expectations of Study Hall. Registration for Study Hall is required.
