To provide an excellent academic education within the context of a Christian world and life view, in a culturally diverse and caring environment for the children of Christian families.
Our Goal is to develop an awareness of the Lordship of Jesus Christ over all areas of life, educate the whole child -- mind, soul and body, develop an awareness and sensitivity to the cultural diversity in which the child lives, studies and worships, encourage students to think independently, based on Biblical guidance and moral conviction, prepare students for additional training in academic or vocational endeavors, and enable students to identify and cultivate their God-given talents for ministry and service in their communities.
