Tree Of Life Christian School purpose is to assist parents and the Church in educating and nurturing young lives in Christ.
From an initial student body of 47 students in Pre-school through grade 3, the school has grown in number and in its understanding of what makes education Christian.
From the first enrollments in 1978, through a pioneer class that blazed the high school path, to the hundreds of families still investing in their children's educations, God has faithfully led students to Tree of Life.
Their role in the Tree of Life story is crucial to its existence.
In addition, God has faithfully opened His storehouse as faculty and staff have been hired.
Jayne Marrah, Tree of Life's first Administrator, began her 18 year career with the school along with 4 other faculty in 1978.
Today over 80 people serve God in ministry at the school.
Each one has played an important part as the story has unfolded.
A Christian Philosophy of Education calls for an educational process that puts the Bible at the center and asks the student to evaluate all he/she studies through the lens of God's Word.
Because God is Truth, He brings a unity of truth to all of his creation.
No subject can be taught in its totality if the Creator is ignored or denied.
