It’s About More Than A Diploma

At TC Christian, knowledge is about more than just filling your child’s head with facts; education is about more than having them listen to a lecture or take a test. Here, your children will develop a deeper understanding of people, life, and God, all while getting a top notch education.

With a diverse package of classes and real world applications, we offer a wonderful opportunity to partner together and help shape your student’s worldview, academically and Biblically. Review our program and learn more about the courses we offer, our required classes, and some of the extracurriculars that make TC Christian a place in which high school students love to learn.


BIBLICAL STUDIES

Studying the Bible trains students to engage the text of Scripture at a deeper level. It prepares them to understand the literary and historical studies that illuminate the Biblical narrative. It gives them research tools to ask context-based questions about authorial intent. And it equips them to see how the Scripture is connected to all aspects of life. The Bible is a required course through every semester of high school.

This inquiry scrutinizes human action and belief, for better or worse, and seeks to understand the forces and trends that shaped events and actions. The courses use authentic tasks, primary sources, and artifact lessons that teach students to learn as the scholars do, using modern and historical resources. Social Studies is a required course from Grade 10-12.

FOREIGN LANGUAGE (SPANISH)

In high school Spanish, students are transported beyond the traditional classroom setting into real world situations. Vocabulary and grammar are introduced through task-based learning exercises which help students naturally explore and practice the language. In 12th Grade, students embark on an overseas mission trip where they are immersed in a Spanish-speaking culture. This exposure to authentic language situations and varied speaking styles helps students become enthusiastic learners who are more confident communicating in real life settings. High school students take two credits to graduate.

DUAL ENROLLMENT (NORTHWESTERN MICHIGAN COLLEGE or TBA CAREER TECH CENTER)

As they begin to think about their future, many high school students may find they want something different out of their high school experience. Whether students are looking to get a head start on earning college credits, explore subjects that aren’t covered in traditional high school classes, take on a more rigorous or engaging workload, or get an early glimpse of life after high school, dual enrollment can be an excellent route to take.
