9th - 12th Grade

Meets on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays
At Home
Once students reach the high school level they should be completely independent in their at home work on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Parents are called on to help students at home, only if their student is struggling with independence. Students should expect to put in at least an hour at home for each subject they have in school. 
School Structure
The students start their day at 8:45 am with Community Time. This special time in the morning allows all 7th through 12th grade students to come together for a short devotion or team building activity. They have the same academic schedule of classes on all three days. High school students will have 60 minutes of Exploration Time each week. 9th -10th graders will explore different art forms such as screen-printing, dance, film writing, and chorus. 11th-12th grade students have the option to focus their Exploration Time on ACT Prep, Senior Capstone Project, or be a part of the Yearbook Committee.
Along with several choices for science, math, social studies and language arts, we offer many elective classes to round out the high school experience and fulfill graduation requirements. Graduation requirements and a four year plan are discussed with families beginning their freshman year.

DaySpring is part of the Missouri A+ Scholarship Program and students are required to complete at least 50 unpaid community service hours in tutoring or mentoring, 25% may include job shadowing. Community service hours and the Senior Capstone Project help develop our students into citizens who contribute to and care for their community.

High School 1

9th Grade & 10th Grade

In the first years of High School we expect the student to write with accuracy and fluency.  Our attention will shift to literature analysis. Students will be expected to identify a theme within a piece of writing and develop an idea of how that theme is shown through a story.  We will expect them to demonstrate understanding through character analysis and essays based on the literature study.  We will also develop skills in discussion and debate through class participation in debates and idea exchanges.  We will expect them to be able to write a concise summary of the events in a complex piece of literature.  They will be stretched through specific studies in science and math.  Our students are all encouraged to take Spanish which will fulfill college requirements, but more importantly, it will prepare them for the global world we live in.  At this level, students should be completely independent in their at home work.  Parents are still expected to monitor students' at home assignments.

High School 2

11th Grade & 12th Grade

The focus of the Academy shifts in the final years of high school to really prepare students for college and career, and to be independent thinkers and clear communicators. Students will develop and hone their skills in presentation and writing.  They will have elective classes in personal development, social sciences, and worldviews to help prepare them for life after high school.
