Our mission is "Christlike Character -- Academic Excellence".
 We have a rigorous academic program, and high test scores.

In the Spring of 2015 we opened our new Activity Center which contains a high school regulation size gymnasium! It will also house our performing arts stage.
Our next project will be to add a new Science/STEM lab, music department, and re-purpose existing space so that we can add more classrooms to accommodate increasing enrollment.
