Founded initially in 1981 as a state-supported day care center, our ministry has since grown into an independent K-12 school,which accepts students ages 4-12 years old.
Some students come to our school for a short period of time, while others stay for years.
Our work is funded by the generosity of private donors so that we can offer housing and schooling at no cost to the families we serve.

School Reviews

  • Recommended September 07, 2013 - I am actually not a parent of a child in this school but I would like to say that I have been acquainted with some of the children and one main teacher. I have to say that I was amazed at the warm nature of the male teacher and genuine fatherly instruction. One of the most godly men I think I''ve had the pleasure of meeting. The children were amazingly well behaved. The way he cares for those children and directs them in life is a gift from God. This school is a blessing from God and a true diamond in the rough. - Posted by Parent
