In addition to 19 AP and 24 honors courses, Christian Academy of Louisvilleā€™s English Station High School offers three programs of distinction. The School of the Arts, School of Biomedical Science and School of Spiritual Formation offer a rigorous curriculum with robust hands-on experiences that equip students for professional and/or collegiate preparation in these areas of study.

In the arts, students can focus on choral, instrumental and visual arts. Students pursuing a diploma of distinction from the School of the Arts are required to take additional core performance or artistic development courses, AP classes and participate in performance/artistic competitions.

In science, students desiring a diploma distinction from the School of Biomedical Science are required to take AP science courses and four courses that concentrate in biomedical study. Additionally, students participate in both global and local health initiatives, community and/or international service projects, create a portfolio, participate in an internship and acquire CPR medical training and certification.

In the School of Spiritual Formation, distinction consists of four semester-long core courses (in addition to regular Bible classes) that focus on developing students as spiritual leaders who bring the kingdom of God to their present and future callings. Additional features in this pathway include individual mentoring, student retreats, guest speakers, an internship, leadership development, field work, an individual student portfolio and opportunities for college credit. There are no weighted grades in this pathway and class sizes are small to enhance a personal discipleship experience.
