Classes at the High School are intentionally small. Each grade level has five sections of approximately 16 students. The small class size allows for greater individual instruction and feedback. For example, in the laboratory sciences, students are able to immerse themselves in hands-on experiments. In foreign language classes, all students participate actively each day. Writing instructors are able to personalize comments to identify strengths and areas in need of improvement.
Students have the opportunity to participate in strong athletics programs and extracurricular activities. Many students go on to compete on a state and national level. Perhaps more importantly, athletics, the arts and extracurricular programs stress participation, allowing all students to discover and develop special interests and talents for lifelong enjoyment. Finally, crucial ethical questions are raised in an environment both committed to and supported by the principles of the Christian faith.
Excellence is defined by finding a passion for learning, leading, and contributing to school life. Through the help of the advisory program and highly knowledgeable college counselors, 100 percent of the students gain admission to a college that is a good fit for each student's interests and life goals.
