School Notes:

  • School is large enough for students to develop healthy social skills and small enough to maintain a strong family relationship among students and staff.
  • Chapel service every Friday
  • Devotion and/or Prayer time Monday thru Friday
  • Dress code is strictly enforced but has enough options to allow a degree of uniqueness among students. It is not intended to resemble the military, but instead is in place to ensure modesty and appropriateness.
  • Scripture used is from the Authorized King James Version of the Bible
  • It is the intention of this ministry that no student ever be turned away solely due to finances. Every effort is made to work with families to afford tuition through work opportunities, deferred payments, and financial aid in situations of great need.
