School Notes:

The ultimate objective of Christian education must serve to point out the very purpose of life itself—that we exist to praise, glorify, and please God, imperfectly in this life, but perfectly in the next. Our objectives are that every child:
  • has a thorough knowledge and understanding of God's Word.
  • builds his/her life around faith in the Lord so that all thoughts, words, and deeds exemplify the life of Christ.
  • is instructed, in every subject, to develop all the talents God has given for his/her use in the world as he/she does all to the glory of God.
  • is prepared through discipline-based instruction for the next step of his/her education.
