High School students at The Charles Finney School are encouraged to strive for academic excellence in everything they do.

Our students not only do well academically but they develop their God-given gifts and talents, too. High school students have a schedule of 45-minute periods that is filled with the required courses for a New York State diploma as well as a number of interesting electives, college level courses, and Bible courses. There is a strong emphasis on applying biblical principles in all subjects.

Finney offers Advanced Placement courses and a Dual Enrollment Program (college-level courses) in partnership with Roberts Wesleyan College. Students can also add electives such as Creative Writing, Digital Photography I & II, Drawing, Painting, Graphic Design, Introduction to Law, and more.

Finney encourages students to participate in our music electives, such as Jazz Band, Studio Orchestra, High School Choir, and Worship Team. High school students attend a weekly Chapel every Thursday. Finney also offers opportunities for students to develop leadership skills by participating in yearbook, student government, mission trips, and by completing the required hours of community service. High school students may participate in a number of extracurricular activities such as Section V sports, FIRST Robotics, and drama.

Our goal at Finney is that our students will become godly leaders in their homes, places of business, churches, and communities. We strive to prepare these future leaders by offering a curriculum that develops their critical thinking skills, encourages their gifts and talents, and helps them build a strong biblical foundation.
