High School Curriculum
High School is a time of deep engagement for students and faculty. Through thoughtful discussions about issues of faith and practice, students are challenged to learn and defend new concepts and viewpoints. High schoolers participate in a variety of unique opportunities through their classes at KCHS. For example, our Environmental Science class conducts an in-depth study of Arcadia Creek which runs through our Stadium Campus. Additionally, KCHS is one of the few schools in the region that offers technical classes in auto-mechanics, and woodworking. KCS students participate in bi-weekly Comet Time where they are able to explore areas of interest with teachers, or receive support for areas of need. Throughout their career at KCHS students benefit from opportunities for study abroad. Spanish students practice fluency in Costa Rica, Ecology students study cheetahs in Kenya, and Biblical studies come alive in Israel.
When students in Spanish Immersion graduate 8th grade, they are dual-enrolled through KCHS and Western Michigan University to study in the Spanish Department and earn a minor in Spanish from WMU while still in high school. In fact, all KCHS students have the opportunity for dual-enrollment through partnerships with Education for the Arts, Education for Employment, KVCC, or WMU throughout their high school career. Through dual enrollment our students could enjoy a class in comic book art, fiction writing, or an internship in welding.
Kalamazoo Christian High School graduates will be prepared for innovative opportunities and college-level learning with competitive skills to be successful as well as spiritual development to stand on their faith through the challenges they may face in the future.
