As a child’s educational journey leads to The Upper School, students in grades 9 through 12 continue to explore, discover their passion and develop their faith while completing the foundation that will serve them throughout their life.
In our upper school, the mustang team spirit and social development start to take shape through extracurricular activities and community service projects.
From robotics to our athletic programs, from service projects to musical performances, there is a way for every student to grow and transform into anything they want to be.
Colleges want to attract students who stand out. They want to see students who stretch themselves beyond the limits of the classroom and who embody inventiveness, persistence, fervor, intelligence, and generosity. With this next educational phase, students develop leadership skills and have a unique opportunity to prepare for college by earning college credit through dual-enrollment classes on the campus of Lipscomb University, earning up to as much as a year of college credit by the time they graduate giving them a head start on their college pursuits.
Lipscomb has made it easy for me to have a flexible schedule to give me time to do things I like to do. Through Endeavor I have been able to go to the elementary school to be able to learn about the possibility of me becoming a teacher one day.
