High School 9-12
High School at CFS is a busy combination of academics and activities designed to prepare, enrich, and mature students in their knowledge, faith, and character. Academics are challenging, but with strong teacher support and individual assistance, students regularly find themselves achieving at a higher level than they may have thought possible. The CFS guidance counselor regularly meets with students to discuss interests, academic progress, establish an appropriate sequence of courses, and prepare for post-secondary training and education.
High school life includes opportunities for leadership, service, athletics, fine arts, and social events. Students learn leadership skills in student council, national honor society, student-led chapels and small groups, club activities, and on athletic teams.
CFS believes in servant leadership, so service is an integral part of student life. Regular activities include lunchroom clean-up teams, band set-up and tear-down, worship teams, and yearbook. The junior class raises money for a six-day, service and history trip to New Orleans and CFS seniors must meet community service requirements before graduating.
CFS’s relatively small size allows students to participate on athletic teams and in fine art activities that may not be accessible to them in a larger school. Such experiences shape character, provide opportunities to discover interests and develop skills, provide a platform for displaying gifts and talents, and build memories lasting a lifetime.
High school is a time of developing and maturing in character and social skills. Of course, much of this occurs in everyday student life and classroom interactions, particularly in Bible classes, but all CFS sponsored activities are designed to help students discover and grow in who they are in Christ and in relating to others in a healthy manner. Spirit weeks, pep rallies, and school dances add to the fun and social activities at CFS.
