Our Philosophy

We believe educating the whole child necessitates three important forces in the child’s life: a Christ-centered home, church, and school. The working together of all three of these provides a much greater assurance of rearing up young men and women who will make a positive impact and difference in our world for Christ. We believe education is a partnership. Students function best when there is consistency between the home, church, and school. Therefore, it is our role to be an extension of your home and church (Deuteronomy 6:6-7 & Ephesians 6:4).
