“This course greatly enhanced my understanding of classical history and literature from a Christian standpoint! Because it was dual enrollment through Belhaven University, we got the added bonus of earning college credit without having to take a stressful AP exam at the end of the year. But without a doubt, the best part of High Scholars was seeing my classmates four days a week and getting to know them personally!”

Emma M (student – High Scholars)

“High Scholars has been awesome! It changed my perspective of the world and how I perceive things around me; it challenged me, but I found a new sense of adventure. Class is always a fun trip down history filled with stories as old as time; it’s mind-boggling. Belhaven became more than a class to me, it was my epiphany. And all of my teachers and classmates were amazing!”

Abigail J (student – High Scholars)

“I would recommend this course to anyone looking to get a deeper education in high school. The teachers give you the tools and resources and teach you how to write and learn like a college student. Not only have I developed better writing skills, learned so much about world literature and history, and learned to appreciate art, but I also feel that after taking this class I am more prepared to go to college and have a better grasp of what will be expected of me.”

Isabel M (student – High Scholars)

“There are so many things I could say to influence others to take this class. This course really focuses on strengthening the foundations and thoughts of its students. In the English section, I got to read so many interesting short stories, poems, and essays and discuss their meanings and themes with my fellow classmates. In History, I received objective lessons on historical events and movements. I even got to discuss and debate my own ideas on subjects like Globalization, Marxism, Imperialism, and much more. In the Art History section, I got to learn about different cultures and their ideas through their art. I got to see different ways of looking at history or topics just through different pieces of art. All of the teachers are well educated in their studies, friendly and loving to their students, and focus on teaching their students how to think and discuss. This class has brought me much joy, and I hope that you strongly consider taking it.”

Daniel W (student – High Scholars)

“I recommend this course because it so successfully combines English (literature), History, and Art History and they all follow the same timeline! I had never done Art History before, and the College Art Appreciation part of High Scholars Year 2 helped me understand and appreciate art in so many new ways.”

Glorianna G (student – High Scholars)

“I really cannot praise High Scholars highly enough. The teachers are fun, engaging, knowledgeable, and passionate about what they teach. I never knew I could learn so much while still having fun. With this class meeting four days a week, there is more of an opportunity to grow closer as a class, and I am so grateful for the friends I have made. Rather than studying different eras of history as compartmentalized sections of time, I have learned how all of history interconnects, giving me a much fuller understanding of the world of the past. Although this course is a challenge and a large time commitment, it has transformed my writing and helped me reach academic heights that I never knew I could.”
