High School

We are proud to shape the leaders of tomorrow, instilling qualities that will serve them for a lifetime. We are intentional in offering multiple avenues to help our students grow spiritually and academically. We offer a rigorous academic program which includes Advanced Placement® (AP) courses. Eagle graduates are ready to apply their knowledge and Christian ideals in college and wherever God takes them.

Faith Christian School offers extracurricular activities designed to give the opportunity for our students to connect and make memories with their peers.

SPIRTUAL FORMATION

WEEKLY CHAPEL

Our secondary students have a separate chapel from our elementary to provide age-appropriate, timely, and engaging teachings. Our student-led worship team kicks off each chapel with songs of praise and worship followed by a message from God’s Word.

LEADERSHIP

Our leadership trips are designed to help students grow spiritually and relationally as they get stretched out of their comfort zones.

Our freshmen leadership trip focuses on team building and gaining a deeper understanding of each other and their individual gifts and callings.

Sophomores and juniors take a three day retreat to a local Christian camp. They are challenged to consider the influence and legacy that they have and will have in their communities.

Seniors spend about a week exploring, experiencing, and celebrating God’s creation in Northern Arizona. We partner with Christian ministries in the area to see evidence of ancient people groups, extinct volcanoes, and the Grand Canyon. While touring these sites we spend time getting hands-on experience with God’s creation as well as the redemption of it.

EAGLE TIME & HOUSE GROUPS

A short amount of time is set apart each day for Eagle Time. Secondary students are divided by house groups run by staff members. These groups are paired with our three guiding values of Love, Learn, and Lead, and are named after our character awards: Barnabas, Peter, and Nehemiah.

Eagle Time is different each day consisting of activities such as weekly group competitions, prayer time, check points, devotions, and time spent mentoring younger classes.

STUDENT LIFE

High School Special events

Faith Christian School events are designed to give the opportunity for our students to connect and make memories with their peers.

Fall Fling is a high school only event hosted by Student Council. Fall Fling typically takes place in October. It is a more casual event where you might see a lot of matching flannels, group games, and good food.

Snowball is a high school winter formal event. Typically held late in February at an off site location. The night begins with a sit down dinner, followed by games and the crowning of the court.

Junior/Senior Banquet (JSB) is an event put on by the Junior Class to honor the Senior Class after their last day of school. This is the most formal event of the year and is usually held in a banquet hall in a nearby location. Juniors, seniors, and their families, along with any staff members, are invited to attend the event.

The Athletic Banquet is an opportunity for student athletes to gather with teammates, family, coaches and friends to celebrate their athletic accomplishments.

Awards Night is an evening to recognize individuals who have shown exemplary academic success and exemplary character.

Getting INvolved

Student Council is an organization in our school that is run by high school students and a staff advisor. The goal of the student council is to aid in building the culture at Faith Christian School by planning and executing social events, fundraisers, and spirit weeks. The student council offices are elected by their peers and serve the student body for the year.

Team Sports are one of the key components of a comprehensive Christ-Centered Education at Faith Christian School. It is an opportunity to develop character that prepares students physically, emotionally, and spiritually as part of the overall discipleship process.

Theatre includes every student no matter what his or her ability. There is a wide range of areas a student can get involved: acting, singing, technical, set building, and hair and make-up.

Worship Arts is a student led worship team. Members lead worship at every capacity during weekly chapels including music, lighting, audio tech support, and visual tech support. Not all worship members are musicians.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

Leadership is servanthood and starts internally. A person with the right character and mindset will serve those around them. A servant attitude demonstrates internal change has taken place. We provide many opportunities throughout the year where they can service their school and greater community.

Christ himself gave the directive to serve others as He has served us (John 13:14-15). With the deep conviction that service is an integral part of the life of any believer in Christ our high school students are required to complete 15 hours each semester, totaling 120 hours over their four years at Faith.
