WELCOME TO CISP HIGH SCHOOL

 

In grades 9 through 12, most classes meet for 45 minutes, four or five times per week. 

The courses at CISP follow a United States curriculum with limited flexibility. For example, a wide range of literature and world history is studied; both metric and US customary systems of measurement are used, etc. Also, we are sensitive to students who need specific courses for entrance into universities in their home countries and help students meet requirements as we are able. We allow homeschooling families to send their children to our school for individual classes when we offer courses and schedules that meet their needs.

English Language Learning - all ELL students are encouraged to obtain additional English instruction (tutoring) outside of CISP’s program. This is especially recommended for children in grades 4 and above. Arranging and paying for this extra tutoring is the responsibility of the parents.

We recognize that all truth comes from God.  This means we seek the best resources from both Christian and non-Christian authors and publishers and encourage students to read books from both.  In fact, we see it as a crucial part of teaching the students how to think about and relate to the world around them. They need to be exposed to the various philosophies and beliefs present in the unbelieving world, and taught how to respond from a Christian perspective, sifting truth from error.  Then they may live in the world with confidence, having been firmly grounded in the truth.

PREPARATION FOR UNIVERSITY ENTRANCE

CISP makes an effort to provide university-preparatory classes.  Several classes in the 11th and 12th grades are designed to help students prepare to take an Advanced Placement (AP) exam.  

If students are interested in taking classes that are not currently offered, CISP excepts the grades from and has vetted the online school Sevenstar Academy.  Some of these courses may give students dual credit.  

We are sensitive to students who need specific courses for entrance into universities in their home countries and help these students meet requirements as we are able. 

Part Time - We allow home schooling families to send their children to our school for individual classes when we offer courses and schedules that meet their needs. 

COLLEGE INFORMATION & CAREER PLANNING

Historically, CISP has prepared its high school students primarily for higher education in the United States.  However, with more and more students interested in studying elsewhere, we are advising students to seriously consider taking AP (Advanced Placement) exams.  Most European universities accept American high school diplomas with 2-5 passing AP exam scores. (A passing score is generally between 2-5). 

The school counselor is happy to meet with students at any time to discuss life after high school.  Whether it is for some brief career counseling, taking an interests survey, or discussing a student’s interests or concerns about life after CISP, the school counselor is available for all students.  

CISP is now also a CLEP testing center! This means we are now a testing center for the entire suite of CollegeBoard assessments,
including SAT, PSAT and AP tests. Our facility is able to offer a testing space for students not only from other schools but also
from other countries. This is an exciting development as it will better serve our students and help us in our efforts to
continually find new ways to serve the Czech community.
