Academics

Linfield Christian School offers a rigorous academic college-preparatory program rooted in and shaped by a Christian perspective. The curriculum at all three schools—Elementary, Middle, and High Schools—meets California Department of Education subject area content standards. As part of an annual schoolwide curriculum review process, ongoing academic advancements and program enhancements are in effect to ensure the curriculum meets the required national standards promoted by the Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI), as well as the standards for college readiness and success recommended by the College Board and ACT.

Biblical Focus

Biblical integration is a primary focus of the college-preparatory curriculum, presenting students with a God-centered worldview based upon God’s Word, the Bible, as the standard for all truth. Central to the spiritual development of students through the Bible curriculum at Linfield Christian School is that students be afforded many opportunities to explore and discuss the nature of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, to find intelligent and meaningful answers for the Christian faith, and to practically apply Biblical truth to every aspect of their daily lives. In addition, students are guided in the areas of skill and character development, as well as moral judgment, to increase their potential for personal success in education and business arenas worldwide.

All students at Linfield Christian School attend chapels weekly. Chapels have the potential for powerfully impacting students’ lives, not only within the context of the chapel experience itself, but also within the context of the classroom and other activities throughout the week. Thus, developing increasingly meaningful and effective chapels that encourage and support the spiritual development of students is an important focus of Linfield’s campus-wide chapel program.
