Graduation Requirements

It is the expectation that each graduate of Joy Christian High School will demonstrate a personal understanding of the Christian faith and values as found in the Bible and reflected in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. We will have prepared our graduates to communicate these values effectively by equipping them with superior verbal, written, and technological skills. Not only will graduates have the ability to think critically, solve problems effectively, and draw conclusions from research, personal analysis, and investigation; but they will have the interpersonal skills to work cooperatively and effectively with others. This competence in the areas of Christian values, the academic disciplines, and cooperative relationships will enable them to pursue the university and career goals to which they aspire and prepare them for those they have yet to realize.
