Our Methods

Open Dialogue

High school students learn in a culture of open dialogue where relevant ideas are discussed, but absolutes are embraced. Every course, from science to foreign language, is specifically designed to develop critical thinking abilities, discovery and investigation in a collaborative setting and to integrate a faith that is willing to be counter-cultural.

Students in grades 9-12 receive regular homework assignments during the week, and special projects (book reports, theme papers, etc.) are assigned with more advance notification. Homework assignments and grades are available on the internet through ParentsWeb.

Our Teachers

KHCS teachers are experts in their field, and many of the high school teachers possess advanced degrees in their content area. Every teacher is dedicated to the Christian faith and committed to integrating Biblical Truth into all aspects of school life. Our teachers regularly provide student support during after school help classes.
