I was attending my oldest daughter’s college orientation meeting when the director of admissions was discussing her own high school. She said her high school stopped giving finals in their classes. She continued by stating that this was a huge disservice to her continued educational pursuits and her college experience. The trend to end giving finals at the high school level has been a movement for some time. There are several area schools that do not give finals. At MLHs we will continue to give finals as a service to help prepare students for the opportunities ahead of them. Preparation for great things does not happen without a little effort. We work very hard to help students find success not merely in finals, but also in the day to day operations.
When it comes to our spiritual lives, we are expected to take a final. It can be and often is STRESSFUL. However, in faith, we realize that Jesus has taken our test for us, and He has passed it with flying colors. This frees us to move forward in Joy to share the Gospel. This is a Truth we also share at MLHS. We do not merely help students prepare for and pass academic finals. We help them prepare for and “pass” their spiritual finals as well. Training and strengthening the faith walk of teenagers is critical. Poor preparation, whether in school or faith, leads to tougher steps going forward. Putting in the effort and making the sacrifices necessary to provide quality preparation can, and does, make an Eternal difference. MLHS needs everyone’s help to help us as we strive to make these differences in families’ lives. Parents, let us help you with your high schooler. Teens, let us help you be ready for the life God has planned for you. Final registration days for the upcoming school year are August 6th & 8th. We stand ready to help!
Come, Lord Jesus, Amen!
