Upper School


Upper School curricula are varied. The publishers listed with each course are a base textbook and not the whole of the curriculum. Science and History courses are supplemented to include key Christian resources that address the Christian worldview in relation to science (I.e., Creation, Intelligent Design, Divine providence, etc.). English classes also use a variety of individual literary works that correspond with its curricular expectations. Junior and Senior high students with at least a 3.0 grade point average have the opportunity to take Dual Enrollment college courses through the community college as provided by the North Carolina Legislative Grant.
