An integral component of the High School’s college preparatory program includes opportunities for student participation in standardized testing. Our standardized testing strategy includes practice tests for both the ACT and the SAT. Students complete the ASPIRE test in ninth grade and the PSAT test in tenth and eleventh grades. In addition, Linfield Christian High School hosts multiple SAT and ACT test dates throughout the year.

Biblical Focus

Our Bible program exists to equip students to reflect Christ in their circles of influence long after they graduate from Linfield Christian School. Courses are intentionally aligned to speak to students’ hearts and to meet their individual spiritual needs while teaching them how to study, interpret, apply, and communicate the Word of God as part of a growing relationship with Christ. The scope and sequence is designed to root and establish students in their faith. Students learn what it means to walk in a manner pleasing to the Lord; they are encouraged to grow in spiritual wisdom and understanding; they are taught to identify and apply a Christ-centered Theistic worldview, and they are equipped with the skills they need to articulate and apply their faith outside the classroom.
