Campbell Hall’s secondary program is inquiry-based and student-centered. Our 75-minute rotating block schedule is designed to allow time for students to engage in research, lecture, discussion, group work, and project-based learning that prioritizes engagement, depth, and quality over quantity.
At the core of our secondary curriculum is an appreciation for the fact that students are in the process of developing the power to reason; that they are evolving a pattern of faith for daily living, part of which involves their evolution as decent, loving, and responsible human beings; that they are preparing for further education; and that they are learning to become informed contributors in society.
Our high school curriculum continually evolves to provide a challenging mix of course offerings, for example: Engineering Research Projects, Experiments in Animation, Advanced Stage Design, Television Production II, Contemporary Choreographers’ Lab, AP Chinese Language and Culture, and CHAI Critical Race Studies.
High school students have the option to supplement their academic schedules and delve into areas of study in order to further personalize and enrich their curriculum:
Examples of independent studies students have engaged in include The Literary Landscape; Mixed Media Special Projects; Structural Mechanics, Nuclear Energy and Technology; Advanced Engineering; Writing & Development of Film; Eastern European History: The Jagiellon Dynasty (1385 - 1569); Data Structure & Algorithms; Game Design Using Unity; and American Legacies of Race.
Online Study Programs
Students have taken online courses from Johns Hopkins CTY, BYU, and Stanford Online High School, which have included Multi-Variable Calculus, German, American Sign Language, Physics Electricity & Magnetism, and Early Childhood Education.
