Tel: (205)854-2741
Grades: PK-12 | 108 students
The purpose of the school is to teach the children to discern between right and wrong in order that they may choose to do God's will.
We seek to help each student to become a well-rounded person in four areas -- mental, physical, spiritual, and social.
"And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man." We believe that Christian education is a mandate from God, and that failure to instruct our children in spiritual things would be an act of disobedience against Him.
Education of the children is ultimately the responsibility of the parents, and it is the goal of this church to support and assist the parents in this task through the church school.

School Notes:

  • In September of 1982 the Lord led to start a school ministry. We started with four students our first year and God has richly blessed us since that time. We had a strong burden and conviction that what parents taught at home should be reinforced in their "everyday" schooling. And that every child should be able to receive an edication in a good Chritian atmosphere without fear of harassment or intimidationfrom others.Good communication and orgination is a must if a ministry is to run effectively.We have put together a Parent/Student handbook.Please request one by phone or email. Many of your questions about us and our philosophy will be answered in the handbook.
