High School (Grades 9 – 12)
This SCS High School consists of self-contained classrooms using curriculum from a variety of suppliers (A Beka, ACSI, Accelerated Christian Education, and Provincial – NB Department of Education). This very unique school division offers students a safe and stimulating environment to seek out interests, aptitudes, and future educational/career pursuits. Students are tracked yearly and met with individually to ensure that their course selections and extra-curricular activities feed into their post-secondary planning, as it evolves. The Guidance Department full assists students to research and pursue their goals and dreams with respect to their educational path in college, university, seminary, or the world of work.
SCS High School students are offered many different opportunities to see the world, experience culture and differences in people, explore interests, and attempt to reach beyond their comfort zones. Life-long friendships are built and often remain throughout adulthood, long after graduation.
Academic rigour is one of the core values of the high school program. Courses are offered in the following disciplines:
- All Sciences
- Computer Science
- Physical Education
- Co-operative Education (students may gain practical unpaid work experience in a field, paired with an academic course, and gain up to 2 credits)
- Various electives (based on availability and student interest)
SCS High School Dual Enrolment Program
Sussex Christian School partners with Kingswood University, also located in Sussex, to offer a dual enrolment program for students in Grade 12 at Sussex Christian School. This program allows high school senior students to gain university credit before high school graduation. Perhaps even more valuable is the experience of the university culture, giving the student a little bit of exposure to university campus life.
SCS students are offered a variety of general university entry courses (including some on-line courses) that they may take in their senior year. Students must meet the KU entrance requirements and have permission from SCS to participate in this program. Eligible students may take from 3 to 15 credit hours at Kingswood University; six credit hours at KU will be accepted as one credit at SCS toward a student’s high school graduation requirements.
SCS students receive a special tuition rate of $100 per credit hour while in the dual enrolment program. SCS will rebate the first three hours of credit upon proof of passing the course.
Graduates of the SCS High School Program earn a diploma that prepares them to enter colleges and universities throughout Canada, United States and around the world. All students are given formal exams twice yearly. Senior students may sit for SAT exams, or other standardized tests required by some post-secondary institutions – all facilitated by SCS.
