Rose Hill Christian High School
Rose Hill Christian High School is a private, non-profit Christian school operated by the Rose Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Ashland, Kentucky. Organized in 1980, the school draws students from several Kentucky counties, Ohio, and West Virginia.
The school's philosophy is based upon its interpretation of Corinthians 2:2,3 and Luke 2:52: "We provide a Christian environment which encourages each student to develop those graces and skills demonstrated in the life of Christ; to discover and exercise his/her own unique, God-given abilities and gifts through expanding opportunities; and to achieve educational excellence in all disciplines, with a strong emphasis on patriotism, respect, and character building."
Discipline and Position on Homosexuality
Describing homosexuality as a "sexual perversion," the school notes in its student handbook that "...gambling, profanity, obscenity, the use of alcohol or any substance abuse, pre-marital sex, homosexuality or other sexual perversions, the indiscriminate taking of an innocent life (born or unborn), and other such practices" are considered unacceptable conduct and may be grounds for expulsion (emphasis added).
In recent years, the school has gained notoriety for being very competitive and a recruiting hotbed for high school basketball. USC's O. J. Mayo and Kansas State's Bill Walker both played for Rose Hill when they were eighth graders. Two current players, forward Dakotah Euton, who has already committed to the University of Kentucky Wildcats, and guard Chad Jackson, are considered top recruits for the Class of 2010.
