ACTIVITIES & ELECTIVES

Gateway Christian Junior High & High School offers a college Prep curriculum that gives students the education they need to compete on a national level. Our students test above grade level on every core subject.

 

STUDENT COUNCIL

A student council member is elected by peers and represents the student body.  Representatives are chosen from grades 7-12.  Officers are elected from the upper grades.  Their purpose is to:

 

1. Plan special days and projects for the school
 

2. Become the spiritual leaders of the school

PRAISE BAND

Biblical Basis:

The heart of this class is to promote and encourage high school students to worship and “love the Lord their God with all their heart soul mind and strength” (Mark 12:30). One primary goal of the praise band is to develop leaders in high school who carry a passion for the Lord in their hearts and not only sing or play worship songs but live a life of worship (Romans 12:1-2). Psalm 95:1-3 is one of the founding Bible passages for this class, it states “Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods.” Through prayer, Bible study, and worship this class challenges the students to live a life of worship on a daily basis.

 

Expected Student Outcomes:

  • Students will gain a deeper understanding of what it means to “Live a life of worship.” (Romans 12:1-2)

  • Students will develop their own musical abilities through daily musical practice and exercise.

  • Students will develop presentation, performance and leadership skills through leading their peers in worship each week during high school chapel.

  • Students will gain a deeper knowledge of the word of God through weekly memory verses.

  • Students will discover Biblical incite on worship from their weekly worksheets on worship.

YEARBOOK

Biblical Basis:

Yearbook is designed to teach students basic elements of layout, design, journalistic writing skills, and photography to create a memorable yearbook. The goal is to produce a book that displays a school that is distinctively Christian and where the Christian emphasis is consistent throughout the book. Students will learn that having a vision, planning, setting goals, and performing tasks decently and in order are what God expects.
