Our Christ-centered environment and challenging college prep curriculum help each student learn, grow, and prepare for college as well as prepare for a life anchored in faith in Christ and dedicated to service in His name.
We're large enough to offer many opportunities for students to grow and excel, but small enough for students to participate in many different activities.
