Sheboygan County Christian High School was established in 1971. The High School is located on the south side of Sheboygan, Wisconsin, a lakeshore Wisconsin community of approximately 50,000 people. It serves students from throughout the lakeshore area.
 
Characteristics
Sheboygan County Christian High has been established and is maintained by an association of Christian parents who are committed to training their children in keeping with the teachings of the Holy Bible.
 
The program of studies is designed to prepare Christian young people to take their places in society through entering the work force upon graduation or continuing their education in institutions of higher learning. Courses in the arts, business education and applied arts, combined with more traditional offerings, provide a well-rounded curricular experience for all students. The school year of 180 days consists of two semesters. Each of the semesters is divided into two nine-week marking periods. A final exam is administered at the end of each semester.
The school day consists of eight periods of 45 minutes each, during which all students are required to take six courses.
