High School Program


Grace Christian High School offers students in ninth through twelfth grade an excellent academic education taught from a Biblical worldview perspective.  Students are stretched to think critically and develop analytical skills as they prepare for college and vocational pursuits. The high school program is structured to equip students with the necessary knowledge and study skills to be successful in their future pursuits. A hallmark of our Biblical education is the privilege for each student to participate in weekly chapel services with student-led worship. 

In addition to regular high school courses, Grace offers honors, Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment classes in a variety of subjects.  A variety of elective classes and fine arts opportunities are available, as well as the option to take private music lessons in voice, guitar, piano, strings, brass and wind instruments during the school day. 

Extracurricular opportunities are an important aspect of a student's high school career.  Grace has a history of a strong Athletics program and a vibrant Fine Arts program.
