Academics

With a student-teacher ratio of about 17:1, teachers and students develop a partnership in the classroom with the common goal of expanding their horizons through increased knowledge and skills. Whether students pursue a standard or college preparatory diploma, teachers are dedicated to preparing students for higher education. All classes are taught with a Christian worldview in mind that seeks to help students interact with their culture while keeping Christ at the center.
