High School

Equipping Students for Life: High School is a time that students mature into young adulthood. We desire that our students develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and the character to challenge the culture of this world. Our goal is to guide and mentor our students spiritually and socially to build strong character into their lives. In addition to instruction in academic topics, high school students at GRACE are given ample opportunity to apply learning to non-academic situations by applying classroom learning to topics of personal interest. These “free choice” projects give students relevant skills in establishing project scope, timeline, and deliverables in addition to giving them experience in managing their work effort over an extended duration.

High School Curriculum: Students at GRACE Christian High School are provided with a rigorous college preparatory academic program taught from a Christian worldview. Our curriculum provides the challenge of both honors and Advanced PlacementĀ® classes for the students that are gifted academically. We desire for students to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and the character to challenge the culture of this world. High school students have eight, 45-minute classes per day (plus a 30-minute lunch) throughout the year. GRACE does not operate on a block schedule. Students from GRACE have been accepted at a wide variety of colleges and universities including academically selective colleges such as UNC Chapel Hill, Emory University, Washington & Lee University, George Washington University, and Davidson College.

High School Faculty:  GRACE Christian School is blessed with gifted and dedicated faculty and staff. All faculty and staff members profess Jesus Christ as Lord of their lives and regard their positions at GRACE as ministry to Him. Faculty members are required to have a bachelor’s degree and to understand and teach from a Christian-worldview perspective. They are required to work toward their ACSI certification, which includes meeting state licensing, teaching methods, and philosophy of Christian education standards. Our teachers are all expected to continue with professional development both corporately and as individuals. On the 7-12 campus many of them have Masters degrees in their subject area as well.
