upper school - grades 6th-12th


The upper school division is comprised of two sections. The first is grades 6-8 (middle school), and the second is grades 9-12 (high school). Although both sections operate on the same bell system throughout the day and change classes seven times a day, only students in grades 9-12 receive credits towards graduation.

Central’s college preparatory curriculum is designed to challenge students academically. We firmly believe that strong academics are an essential key to succeed at the post-secondary level of education. We also place a strong emphasis on a student’s spiritual and social life as it relates to God’s calling on their lives.

Qualifying students may also take advanced honors classes and take advantage of our college dual enrollment courses. Our leadership team, faculty, and staff are dedicated to helping each student reach their full potential in the world in which we live.

We firmly believe that the essence of all learning is grounded in a biblical worldview. This perspective emphasizes the recognition that all knowledge, spanning across disciplines such as math, science, and literature, finds its source in the absolute truth of God and His Word. Understanding this foundational truth profoundly shapes our daily lives. We challenge students on a daily basis to live out their faith in our community and every place they may go.
