Highroad Academy Secondary includes grades 7-12. In the high school, students literally move up a level as their classes take place on the top floor of the building, and they get to embrace and new uniform of khaki pants and burgundy kilt. Our curriculum follows all of the Ministry of Education learning standards, taught from a Christian perspective, and our BC accredited teaching professionals are committed to providing the highest quality of education for each student in their class, while caring for them as individual learners.
We provide opportunities to support the goals and dreams of every student entrusted to us in order to prepare them for the life beyond high school.
Our Mission: Equipping students to achieve academic excellence to pursue their calling; discipling students to become authentic Christians who make a positive impact in their world.
It is our intent that students learn to embrace their faith in such a way that they can “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have” (I Peter 3.15). Students are involved in worship, prayer, and devotions through Bible classes and Chapel, and every subject is taught from a Christian world-view.
We embrace varied instruction to support all learners and student needs. Hands-on, collaborative, critical-thinking learning opportunities are our priority, and we include technology integration so students have the tools with which they can decipher the world around them. We also offer Work Experience and Apprenticeship programs for students in grades 10-12. In these ways, students are given opportunities to prepare for the future they choose.
Our Student Leadership team builds purposeful cross-grade connections by planning dress up days, Chapel events, assemblies and activities, and by partnering with the Master’s Commission and other community organizations. Our Highroad Garden connects with UFV students, Sardis Secondary School, and the Salvation Army to provide food for local soup kitchens, in addition to providing a dynamic learning space for all students K-12, hosted by our high school students.
We want our students to understand their role as the hands and feet of Christ in our world. To this end, we purposefully include service opportunities into our weekly Bible classes by working within our community and then extend beyond our borders as part of international missions trips to Guatemala and Thailand. We recognize the value of these experiences in teaching our students that they are the agents of change in their world.
