High School

 “Let every student be plainly instructed and earnestly pressed to consider well [that]  the main end of his life and studies is to know God and Jesus Christ, which is eternal life, John 17:3, and therefore to lay Christ in the bottom, as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning.”       -Harvard College Mission Statement, 1643

Submersed in curriculum and learning opportunities that encourage higher-order thinking, SMLCA’s 9th-12th graders are well on their way to becoming Faith Defenders with a Life/Career Growth Mindset.  Resisting the postmodern Secular/Sacred divide lens, our students leave viewing every aspect of career and life choices as Kingdom Building moments. While touring our classrooms you will observe rhetorical conversations and constructive debate on key cultural and historical issues, collaborative and project based learning, facilitation of value added, ethical research,  proper MLA & APA citation practices, and Biblical education and leadership training. Students have a wide array of educational course interests to choose from, including Vocational, STEM, Creative Arts, and 4 year institution Dual-Enrollment offerings. Culminating with a Senior Thesis Project, and required service hours, SMLCA students enter the next season of life as thoughtful, confident, life-long learners, with the propensity to lead well in their homes, communities, and careers.
