Biblical Focus

The Bible curriculum at Linfield Christian High School uses a seminar approach. Underclassmen and upperclassmen meet separately, and Bible courses are designed to meet the unique needs and interests of each group. Bible courses rotate quarterly and span a variety of topics from a basic introduction to the life of Jesus Christ and the essence of the Christian faith, to the Gospel (or “good news”), to principles of Christian living and gender-specific issues. Courses are taught by faculty as well as by local youth pastors and Christian leaders.

Chapels are intentionally and strategically integrated with the Bible curriculum. Linfield Christian High School intentionally partners with local youth pastors to speak at chapels and develop relationships with students. The focus of an integrated Bible curriculum and chapel program is to promote a gospel-centered community, church partnership, and “faith-activating” opportunities through service and missions. The goal is to help students delve deeply into the reality of the Gospel, and in so doing, develop a Christian worldview rooted in Biblical truth and understanding.

Winter Mountain

A fundamental component of the Bible curriculum at Linfield Christian High School is an annual student retreat—called Winter Mountain Retreat—held at a Christian camp in the local mountains. The worship, teaching, seminars, and other activities that take place at this event create many opportunities for students to ask questions, discuss problems, and engage in an ongoing dialogue about the nature of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
