Emerald Scholar

The Emerald Scholars program at Westminster Christian School is designed for exceptional high school students who are driven to seek challenge and enrichment in their academic coursework. An Emerald Scholar will enroll in the School’s most challenging courses, and will benefit from participation in exclusive enrichment activities such as internships, independent research, service projects, and more.

Emerald Scholars will graduate as Christian leaders prepared to think critically, collaborate effectively, seek innovative solutions, and be examples of excellence in their communities.  Students who fulfill the requirements of an Emerald Scholar will graduate from Westminster Christian School with the special designation "Emerald Scholar" and receive a distinctive seal on their diploma, recognition at commencement, as well as commemorative ring.

AP Capstone

The AP Capstone program is the crown jewel of the College Board curriculum, offering two yearlong AP courses: AP Seminar and AP Research. These courses seek to develop students' skills in research, analysis, evidence-based arguments, collaboration, writing and presenting. They are also designed to complement the nearly 30 other subject-specific AP courses available to Westminster high school students.

Students who pass both AP Seminar and AP Research, as well as four other AP exams, will graduate with the AP Capstone Diploma from the College Board, a highly coveted and prestigious honor.

Biomedical Science

The Biomedical Science program allows students to take an investigative approach to real and current medical issues. Working with the same tools used by professionals in hospitals and labs, students engage in compelling, hands-on activities and work together to find solutions to realworld problems. Our professional partners are an integral part of student success and provide mentorship throughout the program.


Westminster’s Engineering Program focuses on a rigorous, project-based curriculum in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to develop students' ability to collaborate, think creatively, communicate effectively, and to work independently to solve problems while introducing them to the engineering field. Students also compete annually in robotics contests and have won State competitions and have received several World bids. 


The Entrepreneurship program is designed to bridge real-world business trends with foundational principles and methods that are commensurate with the industry. This robust curriculum prepares students for college courses and the business world at large. Students demonstrate their personal growth and entrepreneurial mind through the design and development of their own business venture which is presented at Westminster's Entrepreneurial Showcase.
