High School

Stillwater Christian offers a comprehensive high school program with all of the course offerings, electives and extra-curricular opportunities to prepare students to make any post-secondary choice available to them. Through core requirements graduates build a transcript that will stand up to the rigors of any college admissions process.

The tool given to high school students is the tool of communication or rhetoric. Young people in high school tend to thrive on self-expression. The goal in these years is to teach them to express their thoughts and ideas in ways that are both winsome and persuasive. This is accomplished through formal rhetoric courses as well as giving attention to the expression of ideas in the core subjects. The rhetoric emphasis culminates in the defense of a senior thesis prior to graduation. In addition to regular coursework, students participate in a ten day winter seminar. During the seminar classes are suspended while students study one or two subjects in depth. Seminar study has focused on Milton’s Paradise Lost, Homer’s Odyssey, Creation/Evolution, Mock Trial competition, World War II in the Pacific Theater, and others. Students enjoy this break from the typical schedule to deal with a topic in a way not possible during a regular class period.

We are pushed to a higher standard at Stillwater. When we are pushed, we develop a stronger work ethic, which prepares us for life after high school.
