We believe in strong academics.
And we feel a little rigor won't kill any student. In fact, in a day of lower academic standards, rigor is a good thing, as long as the student can have a balanced life.
Most of our teachers have masters degrees or are in pursuit of a masters. Several staff members hold a couple of masters degrees or are working on masters #2.. A graduate degree does not necessarily equal a great teacher, but it does show our committment to expanding staff horizons so our students are well prepared for college.

Typically, long term TBS students taking the ACT College Entrance Exam will score -- on average -- a 24 composite score. This is above average for college bound students; 20 is the national average. Many score in the 28-31 range. The key to a great ACT score is rigor and taking the most difficult classes.
Although our goal is to encourage students to attend a Christian college to further develop a Christian worldview, we have students admitted to: Baylor, Virginia Tech, University of Virginia, Emery Riddle, Old Dominion University, Virginia Commonwealth University, University of Texas, University of Massachusetts - so our students are prepared to go anywhere. Small class sizes ensure an environment for successful preparation.
