Excel Christian School

School Status

Excel is excited to offer a dual-enrolled option for our college bound high school students who want to earn college credit for math and English. Our goal is to offer more courses as we work in tandem with Multnomah University. We are working diligently to provide an accelerated program for high achieving middle school students as well.


There are two types of legal private schools in Nevada: licensed and exempt. Because of our convictions and our philosophy of education, Excel is operated as an exempt school under the provision of NRS 394.211 and as such is exempt from the provisions of the Private Elementary and Secondary Education Authorization Act. To maintain our exempt status, we are responsible for providing an education that is comparable to the public schools, and we strive to go even beyond the state and county standards. We are also accountable for the safety of our students by providing a quality facility.


Excel has received full accreditation through the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and AdvancED.

Student Body

Excel has a culturally and economically diverse student body. We are a SEVIS-approved school, enabling us to accept international students.

Academic Program

Excel follows the Nevada requirements for the number of days in school (180) and the number of hours per subject of instruction, with additional time for Christian studies. Excel’s middle school and high school classes are on a 90-minute block schedule, except for Christian Studies, which meets daily.


High school graduation requirements are the same as Washoe County’s.
Honors Diploma Program Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) classes are for students who:
  • maintain at least a 3.4 grade point average with no F’s
  • obtain the permission of the instructor
  • have the self-motivation to work beyond the normal course requirements and the self-discipline to do independent study
Students who graduate under the requirements of the honors program receive a distinctive diploma and a statement on their official high school transcript indicating they are graduates of the honors program.
AP classes are currently offered in English and American history. Honors classes are available for any of the core academic classes.
