Sheboygan County Christian High School is a Christian school located in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Located on the south side of Sheboygan, it is one of two campuses that make up Sheboygan County Christian School.

This school teaches a curriculum focused on the fact that God is central to all that we believe. SCCHS is a parent-owned school. The school's fundraisers include cherry pie sales and the Good as New Store in Cedar Grove, Wisconsin.

History[edit]

Established in 1971, Sheboygan County Christian High School was founded by parents who wished for secondary education taught with a Biblical worldview. Its original location was inside a church on the outskirts of Sheboygan.The school has been overseen by an association of Christian parents[1] committed to training their children in keeping with the teachings of the Holy Bible and governed by an elected board of trustees. It has grown to its present location at 929 Greenfield Avenue, on the south side of Sheboygan.

In December, 2015, the associations of Sheboygan County Christian High School and Sheboygan Christian School (a pre-kindergarten through 8th grade school on the city's north side) voted to merge.[2] With the merger, the two schools merged both their associations and boards of trustees.[3]

Curriculum[edit]

The school day consists of eight periods of 45 minutes each, during which all students are required to take six courses. Courses in the arts, business education and applied arts are combined with more traditional offerings.[4] The school year of 180 days consists of two semesters, each divided into two nine-week marking periods. A final exam is administered at the end of each semester.

The school offers advanced placement biology. Some courses are offered through Lakeland College, along with blended learning courses and independent studies opportunities.

Visual learning[edit]

Through artistic talents of staff and students, Christian High has large murals in almost every classroom, relating to the subject taught in each classroom. For example, the English room has Shakespearian figures painted on the back wall and the history room has World War I paratroopers landing in the corner.

The school's sports teams compete in the WIAA and the school is a member of the Central Lakeshore Conference.[5]
