Crossroads Christian High School firmly believes that God’s word is the foundation for all knowledge and truth. The Bible program is designed to expose learners to those foundational truths and create life experiences for them to live out their faith. This is accomplished in our time in the classroom, community, and in the mission field. The class courses are designed to first expose the learners to basic Biblical truths and build upon knowledge for them to develop their personal relationship with Christ. Learners will go through a basic examination of the scriptures, evaluate the history of the church, formulating a defense for their faith, and solidifying their Biblical worldview in the context of a classroom environment. Service projects are incorporated school wide to our local community and school to live out what they have been learning in the classroom. The final Biblical focus at Crossroads Christian High School is for each learner to experience the mission field. Every school year we provide a local, national, and international mission trip to serve and share with our brothers and sisters around the world. Our hope is that at the end of a learner’s experience in the Bible program at Crossroads Christian High School they will have discovered the truth that is found in God’s Word, a personal relationship with Christ, and living out his commandments in our lives through serving the world around us.
CCHS English courses are designed to broaden understanding of various cultures through literature, while introducing, cultivating, and strengthening multiple forms of expression through small and large group discussion, presentation, Socratic seminars, literature circles, and writing. All English courses are interdisciplinary, facilitated alongside grade-level history courses where content parallels, and are all facilitated by one credentialed English facilitator and one credentialed Social Studies facilitator. Additionally, CCHS English courses will review and reinforce grammar, syntax, rhetoric and logic through a variety of assignments, projects, essays, research papers, group discussion, presentation, speech and debate. All assignments are purposeful in design, causing learners to apply what is being learned, while demonstrating high-level synthesis and analysis.

CCHS is a college preparatory school that aims to prepare learners, in the best way possible, for life beyond high school. Because of that mission, all CCHS learners take a college prep course each year, specifically designed for each grade level, where the goal is solely to assist in planning, setting goals, understanding the necessary steps to achieve set goals, as well as develop life skills that will aid in each learners optimum success in and beyond high school.
CCHS Foreign Language courses use a full immersion approach of instruction, meaning that the target language for each Foreign Language course is the only language spoken during instructional minutes. All instruction from the facilitator is delivered in the target language of the course, and all dialogue between learners is also done in the target language of the course. The goal for our foreign language program is for all learners to be, at least, bilingual by the time they graduate. We believe this is an essential element of best preparing CCHS learners to be successful in the globalization of the 21st century.
CCHS Fine & Performing Arts Program provides Learners with the opportunity to participate in a main stage production twice a year. Our Block 4 is dedicated to the arts in the way of performance, visual, and instrumental in preparing for the presentation of our “product” as the production itself. There are 4 different course opportunities available in Fine Arts that learners will receive credit for as they progress throughout their 4 years at CCHS. These courses include Fine Arts 1, Fine Arts 2, Advanced Fine Arts and Play Production.
All performances are completely Learner led and produced. This program provides the perfect life-experience for college-career opportunities in the future. Learners must interview for the specific Production Team of choice. Within the team, they are taught how to effectively complete all aspects of “product production”, giving them all the tools necessary to run each show on their own.
Through History we are able to better understand the events that contributed to the evolution of how our present day world came to be. All History courses are interdisciplinary, facilitated alongside grade-level English courses where content parallels, and are all facilitated by one credentialed English facilitator and one credentialed Social Studies facilitator. History is essential in understanding cultures from around the world, and understanding how those cultures have contributed to our own American culture. Throughout all history courses, learners will demonstrate critical reading, writing, and discussion. Learners will make interdisciplinary connections and be asked to take a stance on various topics, for which they will present scholarly arguments supporting their stance. Additionally leaners will develop the ability to intellectually and philosophically identify, understand and discuss human history and our relationship to the world, as well as develop a better understanding of ourselves.
CCHS have multiple ways of fulfilling their graduation requirement, in the area of Physical Education, as we want learners to have opportunity to meet this requirement by using areas of activity that most interest them.
