Course Offering

At the high school level it is our goal to provide a daily integration of the spiritual and academic areas. God and the Truth of His Word are viewed as foundational to all further investigation and study. From this basis we offer a strong core curriculum that meets all the requirements of the Oregon State Department of Education for High School graduation. In addition advanced academic courses are also available for the meeting of all college-prep requirements. Santiam Christian's graduates are fully accepted by the Oregon University System of Higher Education. In addition to the core curriculum, electives in the areas of art, music, business, etc. are also available to allow for specific areas of individual interest.
