Citizens’ High School Programs
Citizens’ 9th – 12th grade curriculum is designed to give each student a solid foundation in the basic academic areas of English, math, science, and social studies. From its inception, CHS has supplemented its traditional academic high school subjects with an array of vocational subjects designed to enhance a student’s marketable skills. Students interested in a vocational career may select electives from a wide range of business/technical subjects. Those students who are planning to pursue postsecondary education are directed to take their electives in math, science, and other advanced academic subjects.
Each Citizens’ subject is built around the latest edition of standard high school textbooks from major educational publishers. These texts have been converted to independent study through the use of Study Guides which act as a teacher at home, offering the student step-by-step incremental learning built around general learning tips, self-check exercises, and general instructions. Many subjects also have workbooks, and if applicable to the subject, a cassette tape. All such materials are furnished by Citizens’.
