Before the pomp and circumstance.
Graduation from Worthington Christian School is based upon specific curricular requirements as well as a student’s demonstration of cooperation with the philosophy of our school. Regarding this required curriculum, our philosophy states: “This curriculum seeks to introduce students to the Truth which God, through the power of the Holy Spirit, has revealed in His Word, in His world, and in and through His Son, Jesus Christ. Not only are students introduced to the facts of this Truth, but they also are instructed on how to apply these truths in and through their own lives.”
Students must earn 25 credits in the following subjects to graduate from Worthington Christian School. The College Counseling team will work with students transferring to WC without Biblical Studies coursework to create a pathway to graduate on time.
- Biblical Studies (4 Credits)
- English Language (4 Credits)
- Mathematics (4 Credits)
- Science (3 Credits)
- Social Studies (3 Credits)
- Fine Arts (1 Credit)
- Health and Physical Education (1 Credit)
- Speech (.5 Credits)
- Electives (4.5 Credits)
As a non-public school, chartered by the state of Ohio, WC complies with the state’s requirements for students to not only meet the curricular program in order to graduate, but also to satisfy statewide graduation requirements. In order to maintain curricular independence, we use the state of Ohio approved TerraNova3 standardized tests as an alternative to the state-issued tests for graduation requirements.
The office of Teaching and Learning monitors each student’s progress toward these requirements. Our students have excelled in this area with the overwhelming majority of students satisfying the requirements early in their secondary school career.
Because the legislation related to these requirements undergoes frequent changes, and the requirements are different for students depending on the year of graduation. Please visit the Ohio Department of Education to learn more.
