During the progressive years of high school, the foundation for developing the mind of Christ while becoming God's leaders of tomorrow is being completed. The goal is to assist parents in giving a solid, Christian education in the final chapter before college. Hebrews 12:1-2 states: “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” The high school student is challenged to live this verse in front of an unbelieving world through the college years and beyond. May students leave Rockwell Christian School determined to run the race for Christ until they reach the finish line.
Students in grades nine through twelve choose either the general or college preparatory track to prepare them for the next season of life. Students' academic achievement is assessed annually through nationally-standardized achievement tests. High school diplomas meet and exceed the North Carolina state requirements. Students have been accepted in Christian, public, and private colleges and have pursued degrees in many different vocations such as medicine, technology, ministry, business, education, and journalism.
Vigorous, academic curriculum taught from Christian educators infiltrates the mind with a biblical worldview. Weekly chapel with guest speakers, along with daily Bible classes and community outreach add to the excitement of growing deeper in Christ. Students are not only taught truth but also the application of the truth, a necessity for a firm foundation.
The high school student is further developed academically through avenues of learning such as computer applications, foreign language studies, lab experiments, music theory, speech, creative writing, yearbook, and participation in the NCCSA Fine Arts Competition. All areas attribute in the formation of a versatile individual.
With competitive athletics and dedicated coaches, students engage in physical activity that pursues commitment and perseverance while creating sportsmanship. Although winning is not everything, unity and learning to play as a team is essential in becoming a productive adult. Visit our athletic page for additional information.
Rockwell Christian School also offers a unique, individualized learning center which is available to students in grades third through twelfth. This facility is to accommodate students with particular academic needs or desires as well as advanced courses not fulfilled in the traditional classroom.
