Shepherd Christian School
California Based Private School Satellite Program Grades K-12
High School Program
Shepherd Christian High School offers a comprehensive system of record keeping, including official transcripts and diploma, with a choice of General Studies or College Preparatory coursework options. Beginning in 2002, the High School Program has had 68 graduates as of 2023.
The High School Program operates in much the same way as the K-8 Program, although the two are entirely separate, operating essentially as two different schools. Parents are provided with a Handbook explaining all forms and procedures as well as all forms needed for each school year.
Parents of high school students meet privately with the administrator three times per school year to establish and review required documentation of coursework, and to assure that their student is meeting the requirements for high school graduation. Monthly Report forms are submitted through the mail, and sample coursework is collected to create a portfolio for each student. Please note that email or FAX submissions of paperwork are not permitted.
The school year runs from August 1 through June 30, but parents may choose their calendar of school days within that time frame. Curriculum is chosen and provided by the parent and is required to be high school level.
