Unique Features of Akili Christian High School
Akili students have the opportunity to attend high school Bible studies offered by Dwell Community Church on Sunday and Tuesday nights. Furthermore, students who are interested in growing their relationships with God may be mentored by Dwell high school ministry leaders.
Students will take the Strong Inventory, a nationally recognized career interest assessment, during their freshman year to begin the dialogue about career choices. Akili students will then shadow at least three different professionals before engaging in one of the three flexible career pathways offered at the school during their junior year.
Akili is pleased to partner with Dwell Commmunity Church to offer students access to Life Coaches. Life coaches are mature adults who volunteer to meet with students one-on-one to teach valuable skills such as study habits, job acquisition and retention, getting a driver’s license, and other skills needed to be a fully functional adult.
Each grade at Akili Christian High School is between 15-25 students, ensuring that each student gets individualized attention and career opportunities that are personalized to their skills and interests.
Students will take Bible classes each year that focus on the core teachings of the Bible in line with Akili’s Statement of Faith. Students will also take a Life Skills class starting sophomore year that will teach them personal finance alongside other necessary skills.
Akili students who live within the Columbus City Schools district will have access to Columbus City Schools busing, and many of our students will be eligible for the EdChoice Scholarship Program.
Each Akili student will choose one of three pathways to participate in beginning his or her junior year:
