Christian Theology

The course objectives for this class are to understand the role of the mind in spiritual transformation; to know the major teachings of historical evangelical Christianity; to understand the New Testament in its historical and cultural contexts; to know the major religions and important cults and sects of the world; to understand the believer’s identity in Christ; and to understand the creation/evolution debate.

Advanced Placement (AP) Physics I: Algebra-Based

AP Physics 1 is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course. Students cultivate their understanding of Physics through inquiry-based investigations as they explore topics such as Newtonian mechanics (including rotational motion); work, energy, and power; mechanical waves and sound; and introductory, simple circuits.

This course requires that 25 percent of the instructional time will be spent in hands-on laboratory work, with an emphasis on inquiry-based investigations that provide students with opportunities to apply the science practices.

Algebra II

This course is designed for students to gain a deeper understanding of algebra enabling them to become better problem solvers. Students will build upon the algebraic skills and concepts learned in Algebra I. Students will be introduced to complex numbers, quadratic equations, systems of equations, matrices, polynomial functions, and fractional exponents.


In this course, students will graph polynomial functions, determine domain, range and zeros of functions, use laws of exponents and logarithms to simplify expressions, use polar coordinates/complex numbers, establish trigonometric identities, and use trigonometric functions to model and solve real-life problems. Emphasis will be placed on graphs, and ownership of a graphing calculator is required.

American Studies II

In American Studies II students will study American history from Reconstruction through the present. The course goals are to understand key influences which shaped and still shape the United States, to possess a chronological understanding of events in modern United States history, and to appreciate the impact of modernity on U.S. founding principles and institutions.

Honors American Literature and Composition II

This course builds on the material covered in American Literature and Composition I. Students will study American authors and their writings from the Reconstruction to modern times. Again, they will appreciate the development of American literature in conjunction with America’s historical development. They will develop skills in writing through the compare/contrast essay, persuasive essay, and problem/solution essay. They will also be constructing a research paper in coordination with American Studies II. SAT/ACT preparation in reading, language, and writing will be emphasized. Students will also continue to strengthen grammar, usage, and mechanics skill as well as vocabulary.

United States Government

United States Government introduces students to key political ideas, institutions, policies, interactions, roles, and behaviors that characterize the political culture of the United States. The course examines politically significant concepts and themes, through which students learn to apply disciplinary reasoning assess causes and consequences of political events, and interpret data to develop evidence-based arguments.


Economics focuses on the principles of economics that apply to the functions of individual economic decision-makers and economic systems used across nations. The course also develops students’ familiarity with the operation of product and factor markets, distributions of income, market failure, and the role of government in promoting greater efficiency and equity in the economy. Students learn to use graphs, charts, and data to analyze, describe, and explain economic concepts.

Spanish III

The Spanish III course emphasizes communication (understanding and being understood by others) by applying interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational skills in real-life situations. This includes vocabulary usage, language control, communication strategies, and cultural awareness. The Spanish III course strives not to overemphasize grammatical accuracy at the expense of communication. To best facilitate the study of language and culture, the course is taught almost exclusively in Spanish.

The Spanish III course engages students in an exploration of culture in both contemporary and historical contexts. The course develops students’ awareness and appreciation of cultural products (e.g., tools, books, music , laws, conventions, institutions); practices (patterns of social interactions within a culture); and perspectives (values, attitudes, and assumptions).
