Our high school program is unique. Our primary goal is to give young adults tools to succeed in their divine purpose or “God-given destiny.”
Academically, many of our students exceed local, state, and even national scores on standardized measures such as the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills, the PSAT, SAT, and ACT. The teachers at CSCL have the freedom to truly seek creative lessons and learning experiences with the studenta. Small class sizes allow teachers to build personal relationships with their students.
Elective programs in the arts, combined with a very unique four-day school week, give students multiple opportunities to discover gifts and talents they may have not considered. We challenge students to take ownership of these pursuits and apply them outside of class. The Arts Explosion, CSCL’s annual schoolwide event showcases all our students’ talent from Kindergarten to 12th grade. A recent addition to high school course offerings is a yearlong study in Entrepreneurship. This course combines study of economic principles with practical lectures by leading businessmen and women and many real-life applications to equip students to be successful in future endeavors.
We take spiritual and personal growth very seriously. Students learn and apply the truths of the Bible to their own lives, grow in their spiritual gifts with consistent practice, and learn the inter-personal skills that will set them up for the kind of challenges they will face in the future.
