Grades 9-12

Leadership Training

Students gain valuable experience in real-life project management through committee-based projects under the supervision and mentoring of staff advisors. Leadership class includes practical training in time management as well as the use of mind mapping, task maps, task lists, and taking minutes. Leadership skills are taught and modeled, including how to delegate, how to supervise others, and conflict management techniques. The following standing committees are active all year: Yearbook, Spirit, and Community Service. Other committees vary by semester.

Senior High Reading List

In Class Reading

During the normal school year many of the books on the required reading list are read in class.  These count toward the requirement.

 

Documentation

For every book a student reads, he must record the book’s title, type, author, page count, and plot or argument.  He must then obtain a parent’s signature as a witness that he has indeed completed the entire book with a good measure of understanding. Click here to download the book submission form.
