Spring 2024 Chapels will take place in the Worship Center

Patriot chapels are unique. We begin each session with worship, but this is not church. We fill each session with information, but our goal is not so much education as it is motivation. Many of our students and their families are facing incredible challenges in their lives, and we want to send a strong message about the power of Jesus Christ to invade any environment and to change any circumstance.

Each semester we hear from a number of inspiring speakers. Chapel guests have included a finalist on ABC’s The Voice, the first blind active duty officer in military history, a world famous magician, and an emergency-room doctor who finds time to feed people in Syria.

Our chapel guests all have this in common: they have worked very hard to get where they are, and they have determined to live for Jesus Christ no matter what it takes. For our students, chapel is an incredible opportunity to be motivated, inspired, and changed.


Superintendent of Schools Bob Ruhlman will offer an encouraging message for the New Year. Chapel will be followed by a BBQ lunch on Main Street.

Kevin Conover Chapel

On Wednesday, January 18th, Kevin Conover, the head of the Christian High Bible department, spoke at Chapel about how dinosaurs fit in with the timeline of the Earth prescribed by the Bible. Since evolutionists generally believe that dinosaurs evolved 230 million years ago and went extinct 65 million years ago, there may be a problem with dinosaurs existing within a time span that began roughly 6,000 years ago. However, from a Christian perspective since by the sixth day of creation God “made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them” (Exodus 20:11 NKJV), then it must come to reason that dinosaurs existed alongside Adam and Eve as well.

It is with sadness that we share that the co-founder of our school district, Dr. Beverly LaHaye, passed away on Sunday, April 14. She was 94 years old.

Beverly was a faithful follower of Jesus Christ all the days of her life, and God used her in extraordinary ways to make a difference in the world around her. Along with her husband Dr. Tim LaHaye, she worked to establish Christian Unified Schools at a time when Christian education was in its infancy. She had a vision to meet the need for God-honoring curriculum and teachers who modeled Christlikeness to the students in their care, and she worked tirelessly to that end.

In addition to her influence on our school district, Beverly was also the author of many books, the founder of Concerned Women for America, and a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was a faithful and treasured member of Shadow Mountain Community Church, where she was honored recently during the GirlTime women’s event. As the audience stood to applaud, Beverly pointed upward, giving all of the glory to the God she served.
