With the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, religion classes provide personal growth experience for students.  Students will be familiarized with the Old Testament, New Testament, other religions and contemporary issues in the world today.  One semeseter of religion is required for 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders.
