Academics

Classes offer a small student-to-teacher ratio. Personalized instruction encourages a greater awareness and confidence in students' God-given gifts and talents. The elementary students use the A Beka curriculum and the Jr. and Sr. High students primarily use A Beka, Bob Jones, and River’s Edge Publishing Company curriculum. Students consistently perform above grade level on standardized national testing (Terranova 3), taken in the spring.

Qualifying juniors and seniors participate in concurrent enrollment programs through the Arizona Community College System and Grand Canyon University, earning high school and college credits simultaneously. High school students are consistently identified in Who’s Who Among America’s High School Students and as ACSI Distinguished Christian High School Students. Our graduates are attending major universities in Arizona and throughout the United States. High School students and alumni have or are currently serving, working, and ministering all over the United States and other countries.
