Students have more opportunities for success and advanced learning at christian high schools in Whittier CA due to the nature of the curriculum, the safety and security provided, and built-in faith and educational supports. The curriculum is designed to meet, and in many cases exceed, the standards held by the state and federal government. It is challenging, coherent, and relevant while not conflicting with the mission and vision of the school.
Mission and Vision
The private and non-profit school operates with a mission and vision that focuses on students and their families having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The vision indicates goals of academic excellence, adherence to a biblical worldview, and positively impacting communities for God’s Kingdom. There is an extensive list of core values and beliefs that parents need to read while exploring the possibility of applying for enrollment.
The lack of safety and security in public schools are a worry and concern for teachers, parents, and students alike. Bullying, violence, shootings, and inappropriate behavior are becoming more commonplace. Private schools have the freedom and means to impose closed campuses with success. Exterior doors are locked during the day so people cannot have access to students.
Visitors must check-in with the person at the front desk to get a security pass and sign in. Volunteers are subject to background checks, and video surveillance is used throughout the building. Teachers, staff, and administrators are all trained in advanced safety measures. There is no tension while switching classes and distractions are minimal at christian high schools in Whittier CA. Parents can experience the check-in process and ask any questions about security when they visit us for a tour or an open house event.
The opportunity to succeed at learning is ensured because there are three levels of extra help for students depending on individual needs. The first level is an intervention which consists of one session per week to review material and get skill practice. The second is tutoring at two to three session per week. Ongoing academic support is available up to four times every week until the material is understood, and the student is comfortable with the skills required for moving forward.
