Upper School at Crown of Life is comprised of a campus-based Middle School (grades 5-8) and an online High School (grades 9-12). Our goal is to help our students become confident, self-motivated and responsible leaders prepared to make wise choices. This is accomplished by teachers who coach, mentor and care for the students and through lessons designed to foster critical thinking, problem solving, communication, collaboration and Christian character development. We invite you to be a part of this exciting community preparing students to be 21st Century Leaders.
Hallmarks of our Middle School include project-based learning, cooperative learning groups, technology integration and graphic organization. Students learn executive functioning skills through the use of assignment planners, note taking and study mnemonics. Bible classes focus on real life applications and discipleship with service to others as a key component. The school day is divided into seven instructional periods with students moving from class to class for challenging courses in language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, Bible, Spanish, music, art, computer science and PE. Eighth grade students have the opportunity to earn high school credits in algebra, health, computer science, Spanish and speech. Each student is given the opportunity to discover and build their God given talents and abilities through enrichment clubs, athletics and academic competitions. Students venture beyond the classroom walls on field trips tied to classroom studies. These include destinations in the Dallas/Fort Worth area as well as trips to Austin, Washington D.C. and New York.
To provide our online High School program, we have partnered with one of the nation’s top online schools, Orange Lutheran Online, a leader in Christian online education for over a decade. Through this partnership we offer a fully-accredited Christian diploma program with Advanced Placement, core and elective courses. This University Model program allows students to complete classes anywhere in the world and work at their own pace. Because we believe that building relationships and community is important socially, emotionally and spiritually, our online students are invited to campus one afternoon each week for lunch, fellowship, Bible study and service projects. Throughout the year additional social opportunities are planned. A faculty member acts as a mentor while the students are on campus but each student will also be assigned an online advisor.
