Home / Academics

High school is an important time in every student’s life. During these years, you will learn fundamentals in your core academic subjects, but you’ll also be thinking more about your future. At The Crest Online, we believe that every student has unique, God-given gifts, and we care about what interests you in the classroom and beyond. 

Our online program offers a tailored academic experience that equips students to glorify Christ through their studies, personal hobbies and activities, and future plans. The flexible classes are a great fit for families who travel, students who like to work ahead or at their own pace, and those who have been homeschooled and want to explore their options for high school. 

What questions do you have about our program?

We’ll answer a few of our most common questions below, but we welcome a conversation to provide more information. Contact us at 803-807-4600 or email our admissions team at Admissions@TheCrestOnline.org to ask your questions.

What Curriculum Do You Use?

As a ministry of Ben Lippen School, we offer a proven curriculum that has been used in the classroom for decades. Classes have been translated to an online format, with careful attention to the continued integration of a biblical perspective, which helps students see how God’s Word applies to every area of life. The curriculum is challenging, but students are supported by dedicated teachers who are accessible and passionate about providing individualized attention.

Are the Online Classes Live?

No — our classes are offered in an asynchronous format, meaning students can log in and complete their work when it is most convenient for them. Students do need to meet weekly and monthly deadlines for assignment completion, but for the most part, they can complete their studies on their own time. 

How Do Students Access Their Work?

We use Canvas, an innovative digital classroom platform that is easy to use and available through any device with internet access. Canvas allows students to access their course materials (readings, videos, etc.), communicate with teachers, participate in group discussions, and see their grades.

Preparing for the Next Step

College prep begins in ninth grade and encourages students to think intentionally about their future goals. We help teens get the most out of their high school experience, consider honors and college prep courses, plan college visits, and explore different career paths.
