We are a college-preparatory, Christian high school with emphasis on math, science, language arts, foreign language, computers, and advanced/honors electives, all centered within an accepting Christian atmosphere. For more than 30 years our school has been providing academic excellence at the secondary level to Horry County families.
Education in the 21st Century
Cyber-space technology is becoming an essential element in day-to-day living, more and more. We live in an online world.
Since governments, businesses and individuals alike are capitalizing daily on the numerous advantages of the Internet, it is
reasonable to expect institutions-of-learning to do likewise; and they are. Universities have for many years offered a variety of academic courses that leverage the power of the Internet. And most recently, Horry County Schools have introduced into their High School curriculum which they are offering to students on a limited basis. Clearly, educators, at all levels, have accepted the fact that online education is an ideal format for enhanced active-learning; consider these advantages:
- A front-row seat in every classroom
- Personal one-on-one teacher access and guidance
- Class materials, lectures and discussions are in written form providing time to gain a deeper understanding before
responding and contributing to class discussions
- Flexible school-day hours
- Learning in a non-threatening environment
Personal Growth Difference:
Our Board and Staff believe that education is not only academics, but developing social skills and exploring their God-given
talents and purpose for their lives. Unlike other online HS curriculums, our high school has an on-campus faith-in-action
sequence known as the Student Seminar Program led by certified staff mentors. Sample focus areas are:
1. Internalizing the Gospel message of salvation;
2. Inter-action Bible Study;
4. Student social activities, and Christian service activities throughout our community; and
5. On going course and career path guidance.
Summarizing the RCLHS Difference:
Tomorrow is Today at Risen Christ Lutheran High School (RCLHS); our engaging instructor-led curriculum (both on-campus and online) offers a unique blend of flexibility, interactivity, collaboration and accountability designed to optimize learning and
cultivate exceptional academic achievement and personal spiritual growth to become leaders of tomorrow.
Diploma & Non-Diploma Programs:
Our school offers both a Diploma Program and a Non-Diploma Program.
Diploma Program students are required to complete 24 credit courses (combination of required and elective courses) and the Student Seminar Program for graduation; typically a 4-year program of study. Although the curriculum is challenging and engaging, students can complete this curriculum in 3-years, taking just three courses every eight weeks; this requires class during the summer semester.
Graduates will receive a fully accredited high school diploma. RCLS is accredited by the National Lutheran Schools Accreditation Organization (NLSA).
Risen Christ Lutheran High School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its admission policies or any other educational policies.
