Block Schedule for Middle & High School

After last year’s success, we have brought back an improved block schedule to continue to allow for the integration of homeschool students. The longer periods also give students and teachers more time to focus on each class and more flexibility to complete homework. Finally the block schedule helps students prepare for similar college schedules where classes are generally an hour or longer and occur every other day.  Teachers give short breaks close to the middle of the class time.

This schedule is for 9th-12th grade. Sixth-8th grade have a more traditional schedule. Fifth grade and below is considered part of the FAITH Elementary School and do not change classes other than daily specials like Art and Music class.

What about Half Days?

Before Thanksgiving & Christmas breaks there is a Full-Monday & Half-Tuesday. Monday’s schedule stays the same. All normal Tuesday High School classes meet for half the time (50 minutes instead of 105). Afternoon middle school classes do not meet. There are few other small changes so make sure look at this special schedule here.

Improvements

Most elective classes have been moved to Fridays with core classes Monday to Thursday. This allows electives to be cut instead of core classes when events happen on Fridays. This also removes the need for alternating weeks where Fridays either had an A schedule or a B schedule like in 2016.

Devotional time is in between lunch and recess for the high school and middle school. Having the devotions at this time prevents them from overlapping recesses with the elementary school. Also it give students time to wake up before engaging in an independent study.

6th-8th grade is no longer on the block schedule. They have shorter classes that meet every day for regular practice.

For Homeschoolers

Homeschool students can enroll for individual classes at a pro-rated price. Homeschool students can then sign in and out at the office, only coming in for those times when they have class. Those qualifying for scholarships will receive the approved discount.

How The Schedule Works

The numbers preceding each class indicates the grade level, while the initials following the class name indicate the teacher.

Electives

Students will finish signing up for electives during the first day of school giving priority to their top choices. Then Mrs. Eastin will assign the electives to A and B days according to student interest. The choices of electives this year are:

  • Art
  • Choir
  • Current Events
  • Graphic Design – 1 semester long. Offered both semesters. Five student limit per semester. $60 fee. 9-12th grade only
  • Physical Education – required for 6th – 8th grade
