Preparing Christian Leaders

High School

The high school at ECS is dedicated to graduating students who become lovers of Christ that shape culture through faithfully living out the Gospel.  This is achieved through live instruction by dedicated Christian teachers, mentorship opportunities, overseas mission trips, and service projects. 

Our Humanities course combines English, History and Bible.  Omnibus (Veritas Press) is a humanities course that teaches students the lessons from the past in order to live in the present. By tapping some of the greatest thinkers alive, Veritas produced the Omnibus, a Great Books curriculum that grounds students in their faith. Omnibus is a latin term meaning “all-encompassing.” Each year of the Omnibus curriculum combines history, theology, and literature to help students grow in their appreciation of the unity of all knowledge. 


Our Science course (Exploring Creation with Biology from Apologia) is designed to be the student’s first high school science course. It is a college-prep biology course that provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology. 


Our Math courses consist of Algebra I & Geometry.  These classes use Glencoe/Holt textbooks. This publisher was chosen because of the extensive amount of extra practice available to the students and provides traditional, non-common core instruction.

Our Spanish program implements Spanish with a Mission and ¡Avancemos! (Holt McDougal) and focuses on instructing the students with the language skills needed for Christian outreach. Students are taught Spanish grammar and given practical thematic vocabulary and exercises. The material is written from a Christian perspective, including religious words and phrases, mission vocabulary, cultural insights, and key Bible verses. At the end of the year, students are able to put into practice all of the skills learned throughout the year with a mission trip to a Spanish-speaking country.

Beginning in 10th grade, students are given the opportunity to participate in a dual enrollment through either Grand Canyon University or Colorado Christian University. This allows students to earn both college credits and high school credits simultaneously.
