Agap¨¦ Corner is a Christian boarding school located in the heart of downtown Durham, North Carolina, that serves a diverse multi-ethnic student body.
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.
