High School Academics

Our Focus

Our desire for our high school students is to see them prepared academically, emotionally and spiritually for their next life chapter through weekly assemblies and an extensive class offering. Just as Daniel in the Old Testament was a shining light in Babylon, equipped with earthly wisdom and spiritual discernment, we desire our students to be likewise equipped as modern-day Daniels to walk out their callings with both natural and spiritual wisdom.

Classes

In addition to the basic core competencies, we offer extended classes and tracks in a variety of areas to allow students to experience many different things, ranging from courses in entrepreneurialism and sustainable organic gardening, to theater, art and music, filmmaking, music production and more. See full class list.

Extra-Curricular Activities

Outside of class time there are lots of opportunities for students to get involved in leading and serving in our school and community. For those interested in school clubs, students can join Student Council or the Student Humanitarian Club. For the musically- or sports-inclined students we have worship teams and multiple sports teams (linked up through other schools in the city) that students can participate in. And taking a role in leading Bible studies gives our high school students an opportunity to help lead younger students into a deeper relationship with the Lord.

Capstone

Our Senior Capstone class designed for our 12th graders allows them to dive deeper into career development and college preparation, helping them graduate with a defined purpose and direction for their lives. We bring in speakers to share about topics from college prep to dating to career counseling, and organize service projects and activities for the class. We spend time talking and praying with each student individually about their interests and skills, helping find the right places for them to launch into.

``I am SO thankful for The Daniel Academy…

I finished my senior year and have attended since the founding in 2007. At this school, the teachers and faculty have encouraged me in my leadership and academic abilities. They have modeled true Christ-like leadership, encouraging the students to follow Jesus’ teachings. I highly recommend this school to any K-12th grader!`` -TH – Graduate
