CHRISTIAN JR/SR HIGH SCHOOL

PATRIOT LIFE

MAGNIFYING CHRIST IN A NEW GENERATION

There’s nothing quite like the Christian Jr/Sr High School Patriot spirit! Whether in sports, the arts, academics, weekly chapels, or the wide variety of special events, there is an atmosphere, comraderie and special bond between students, teachers, staff and families not easily found in public schools. It’s all grounded in Christ and a biblical worldview that sets us apart. Go Patriots!‚Äč

PATRIOT DISTINCTIVENESS

From our yearly calendar to our block schedule and dress code, we are intentional in creating an educational experience that helps our students reach their goals while also building relationships with teachers and other students, exploring their gifts, and creating incredible memories of these important years.

calendar

Our school year begins in mid-August and ends in mid-May, with the first semester ending before Christmas break.

BLOCK SCHEDULE

Every day is different at Christian, as our block schedule helps engage students with content at a deeper level. Mondays we have a traditional 8-bell day, and Tuesday through Fridays are block days with five 75-minute class or chapel periods each.

IN MEMORY OF OUR FOUNDER

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.
