HighWay (9th-12th Grade)

All About Relationships!
The HighWay strategy includes program elements designed for students to build relationships with other students, with adults, and most importantly with Jesus Christ. It’s through these relationships that we achieve the purposes of the Way…to know the Way, grow in the Way, and show the Way. Jesus is the Way (John 14:6)!
