Welcome to Upper School
In the Upper School, we relentlessly shape our curriculum to effectively bring all truth under the umbrella of His truth. We offer a careful sequence of challenging core courses because we recognize that our students only have a brief amount of time to gain the knowledge, skills and wisdom necessary for the next phase of their lives – the move from home and church into the university community. We maintain a dual focus on both the student’s educational and spiritual development.
If you toured our classrooms on a given day, you may see seniors discussing the universal problem of suffering by contrasting Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment and Miller’s Death of a Salesman, or you may see juniors reading their personal testimonies – entirely in French. In biology class, you could watch students wrestle with the tensions between creationism and the theory of evolution. In chapel, you would see student-led worship and hear inspiring testimonies.
All of these events, and many more, are purposefully crafted to create an environment where students can build on personal faith and their God-given abilities to embrace the possibilities of a future realized through discipline and commitment to truth.
