High School

Grades 9-12

Doulos’ High School program empowers students through a rigorous set of academic classes and an extensive college readiness program that cultivates both preparedness for and perspective on college. Our desire is for students to be academically, socially, and spiritually equipped for higher education at an institution of their choosing.

Students are challenged and guided in their work with individualized attention which comes through our small class sizes.  Teachers also make themselves available outside class via email, or after school tutoring. Our schedule includes core subjects such as Math, Science, Spanish, Dominican Social Studies, US Social Studies, English Language Arts, and Bible. We also offer electives such a Technology, Studio Art, Breakdance, Notions of Electricity, Gardening and Agriculture, Principles of Physical Training, Team Sports, Business and Entrepreneurialism.

Senior ESLO Defense

Students in grade 12 are required to present a defense of their mastery of Doulos’ Expected Student Learning Outcomes, or ESLOs to be eligible for graduation.  The ESLO Defense is a presentation designed to show each student’s growth and character development during their time at Doulos. Throughout all of High School, students are working to develop and cultivate mastery over each ESLO.

Expedition Highlights

Leaving a Legacy | 12th Grade

During the “Leaving a Legacy” fall expedition, students will be challenged to think about how to live out their faith in an authentic way.

Students will use the Doulos Code of Character to discuss the legacies that others have left, while challenging themselves and others to think about the kind of legacy they want to leave behind and why.

This expedition dovetails perfectly into their final ESLO Defense presentations, college/calling prep, and graduation.

“Many Parts, One Body” | 9th Grade

Through “Many Parts, One Body” students study the relationship and network of our many social systems, science concepts and people groups and how they are interconnected and rely on each other.

Students take a critical look at different governments and how each works together. As well, students look at how matter is made up of many smaller parts. Students will also recognize that we are all part of the body of Christ and therefore have a responsibility to use the gifts God has given. The final product created by students is a worship night that all churches in the area will be invited to attend.  

“Uncharted Territories” | 10th Grade

In “Uncharted Territory,” students take a look at what it means to be a pioneer.

Students will look at different eras and discuss who the leaders or world-changers were who explored new territories in land, philosophy and engineering. Students will be pushed to show how courage and worldview play a large role in expanding our lives into “uncharted territories.”

Justice & Equality | 11th Grade

Through the “Justice and Equality” expedition students dive into studying people groups that are often overlooked by society. Students address injustices that they see here in the Dominican Republic and around the world.

Students will learn about injustices of their country’s past, how we have overcome some of these injustices, and how to tackle those we still face today. In a final product students will educate their community about these injustices, what they have learned, and ways to be servant leaders in the fight against injustice.
