Junior High (7th & 8th grade)
The Junior High program is designed to prepare students for their high school years. Emphasis is placed on building confidence in writing, researching, and communicating. Students begin to appreciate different literary genres, increase vocabulary, and evaluate literature from a Christian perspective. Science looks at creation through the orderliness and reality of living things as well as the physical part of our universe. Students are exposed to a general study of physics, chemistry, and biology. There is opportunity for hands-on laboratory experiences and participation in a science fair project. Students study people, places and events in our world, Twentieth century United States’ history, and government. Geography is taught through the lens of fulfilling the Great Commission. Students continue to build on their previous math skills and select an accelerated or general math course in 7th grade and pre-algebra or algebra 1 in 8th grade. Algebra 1 is applied toward their high school math requirements. Bible class is a full year in which the application of God’s Word and principles in everyday life are emphasized. Band, choir, physical education, art, computer, and foreign languages are also offered.
COLLEGE CREDIT +
This is an opportunity for 7-12 graders to enroll in college classes and fulfill both high school and college academic requirements. Students can attend a college or university off campus or enroll in classes on TCHS’s campus offered by Urbana University and Edison Community College.
Any student considering CC+ must complete a participation intend form and turn into guidance department. A student must meet all requirements of college or university, complete their application and be accepted by school. Deadlines are very important for participation in CC+.
Special funding through the Ohio Department of Education may allow a designated number of semester credit hours to be paid by ODE. ODE determines the number of semester hours each student receives for this special funding. Students must be accepted by college or university (may select more than one college or university) to be eligible. A special form must be signed and completed by the deadline to be eligible for this funding. Students are notified in the summer by ODE the number of semester hours received. Any semester credit hours not approved to be paid by ODE, can still be taken for college credit by paying a very reasonable cost per credit hour and Troy Christian pays for books/resources required.
