Schaumburg Christian School students in grades nine through twelve begin each school year with a school camp. All high school students are required to attend. The program is designed to let faculty and students get acquainted in a Christian camp setting and set the spiritual tone for the school year. Teachers help students develop and strengthen their personal standards using Bible principles.
Each spring the tenth through twelfth grade students have the opportunity to participate in the annual Illinois Association of Christian Schools Bible and Academic Fine Arts Tournament. The students compete in the areas of academic testing, art, Bible, science fair, speech, spelling, and music.
The state champions from the spring Illinois Association of Christian Schools Bible and Academic Fine Arts Tournament attend the American Association of Christian Schools (AACS) annual national Bible and academic fine arts tournament held in Greenville, South Carolina, on the campus of Bob Jones University. These students compete against other students from AACS schools for the title of national champion in their respective categories.
Fine Arts Program
Many of the senior high students actively participate in the various music opportunities available to them at Schaumburg Christian School. The senior high choir with over 80 members performs at various school functions during the year and at local businesses during the holiday season. Fifty of the choir members then have the unique opportunity to be a part of a choir tour in the spring. The senior high band program excels in its performances from classical to sacred selections.
The senior high students have the opportunity to participate in sports year round. In the fall students may participate in boys soccer, girls volleyball, or cross country for boys and girls. Winter sports include boys and girls basketball. Girls soccer, boys baseball, and track and field for boys and girls in the spring top off the school year.
The annual senior trip is regarded as a significant educational experience. Therefore, all seniors are asked to participate in this activity. The cost for the senior trip is the responsibility of the senior. Seniors can raise money for their trip through wages earned while working in the kitchens during lunch time as well as through fundraisers held throughout the year.
Senior High Graduation
Senior high graduation is always a special time at Schaumburg Christian School as the students participate in a formal graduation ceremony. This is a highlight of the year for these students and their families.
