Academic Handbook and High School Curriculum Guide

The purpose of this handbook and high school curriculum guide is to describe in general terms the courses taught at Fredericksburg Christian High School. Students, in conjunction with their parents, should select courses of study that will prepare them for the future.
 
The handbook covers all of the essential information that you will need to have a positive experience at Fredericksburg Christian School.  In addition to specific class offerings, the handbook covers the many additional opportunities available to further prepare them for their future. High school students can earn additional high school or college credits through a variety of independent study, work-study programs, or dual enrollment programs. These programs of study are available with the recommendation of the guidance counselor, principal or teacher. These programs work best for students who can work well on their own, or who have particular vocational interests and abilities. These programs of study must be coordinated through the Guidance Office.
 
Information about the advanced placement program is also included in the handbook.  Advanced placement courses give qualified students the opportunity to do college-level work while still in high school. These courses are available to students who meet the following requirements: recommendations from previous teachers, qualifying PSAT scores, and a high motivation level. Upon completion of an AP course, students take a nationally administered examination in May. Based on their score, students may receive college credit or advanced standing for each course taken.
 
We encourage you to follow the scriptural admonition to be good and faithful stewards of your time and talents for the Lord. As you select courses outlined in this handbook, please consider taking upon yourself the responsibility for continuing your spiritual and intellectual growth.
