Junior and Senior High at Sunrise

6th Grade - 12th Grade

Junior & Senior High Principal:

Mrs. Meighan Keely 

Overview: Our Junior and Senior High Program is an aggressive academic program and is for the student that is truly motivated to pursue excellence in academics.  Junior High is the first time students are required to wear uniforms. Their school day consists of 9 class periods; each period is 45 minutes long with 4 minutes in between for switching classes. Beginning in 6th grade, students dress out for PE in a school issued PE uniform. Boys and girls each have their own PE classes which are held on alternating days with study hall on the “off” day. JH boys and girls also have their own Bible classes where they will continually deepen their relationship with our Lord and memorize scripture. The junior high and senior high curriculum consists of Bob Jones Press curriculum, and some Abeka curriculum.

Levels of instruction: Sunrise offers multiple levels of instruction in core classes. We offer standard classes, a Precept Tutorial Program and advanced classes in English, History, Math, and Science. Placement in the advanced classes is based on a combination of teacher recommendation, SAT test scores, and placement testing. There is a 6:1 student/teacher ratio in the Precept program, which does increase the cost of tuition.
