An environment of excellence brings out the best in our high schoolers, helping them grow into adults and be prepared for college, career, and calling.
Our high school is defined by strong academics, an emphasis on discipleship, small class sizes, and a family atmosphere. Challenging classes, including a growing number of Advanced Placement and concurrent credit courses, offer students the opportunity to stretch themselves academically.
We have a strong tradition of athletic excellence. Competitive athletic programs – in the fall, winter and spring – offer opportunities for personal growth and leadership development. Our teams have competed in state tournaments over the last several years.
We are committed to providing students with an education that equips them spiritually. Students grow as disciples through dynamic Bible classes, weekly chapels, and an academic environment that approaches every subject with a Biblical worldview.
MOTUS (Latin for movement) teams were created to help students move forward by providing spiritual support, direction, and encouragement through our gifted faculty. We believe spiritual mentorship improves the community health of our student body and results in a higher rate of success (both spiritually and academically). By receiving mentoring, students achieve goals, accomplish tasks, and gain perspective for their spiritual journey.
“Student life is about creating experiences for young people to enrich them, inspire them, and catalyze them,” shared Cameron Cox, Sound Christian Academy’s Dean of Students. “I want students to connect, whether it’s through a fun event, service in the neighborhood, or experience with another culture.”
The arts are an essential part of our school. We have developed education tracks of art-related core curriculum and electives. These include traditional art classes, music instruction, theater, speech, interrelated literature, poetry, and creative writing.
