High School and High School Staff
Various publishers are used for our High School curriculum. Social Studies, Science, and Spanish classes use BJU materials, Math classes use Holt, English classes read a variety of classic novels, and Bible courses use materials from Alpha & Omega and Positive Action. Students take Bible each year of high school and all high school students participate in monthly service projects, as part of their Bible grade. All high school courses are year-long, except for Spanish 1 & 2 (semester courses). Juniors and Senior have the opportunity to take dual enrollment courses through the CCCP program at Wilkes Community College. In addition to academic requirements, our seniors must participate in the senior mission trip (1 week in the spring) and complete 20 hours of volunteer service prior to graduation. The high school staff sets high academic standards because we believe that all students can learn and succeed with the appropriate support. Please visit our Alumni page, where you can read testimonials and view colleges that our graduates have attended.
Naomi Bivins | Spanish 1 & 2 Teacher
I was raised in Alleghany County and I once thought of Wilkes County as the "biggest place in the whole world." After earning my degrees from North Carolina State University and Asbury Theological Seminary (M.A. Christian Leadership), studying Spanish abroad in Spain, and serving as a dental mission translator in Nicaragua, I know Wilkes might not be the biggest place, but it is the best place for me and my family. I am passionate about teaching students, and inspiring them to build bridges between cultures so the love of Christ can be shared with everyone.
