Founded in 2001, King's Ridge Christian School has what you would expect to find in a quality independent school; a custom education with smaller class sizes.
But for King's Ridge, that serves only as a starting point.
There is truly a difference in King's Ridge Christian School.
It's been described as feeling" of a different type of educational experience.
This is attributed to the fact that we are a school that is passionate about our mission.
The mission statement leads each decision made.
We strive to hold true to an education with a strong foundation recognizing the developmental stages of a student as they learn.
We also strive to structure an environment that is often not achievable in a larger mega-school.
King's Ridge Christian School recognizes that the world is rapidly changing and we must equip students with tools that will prepare them for a college education and beyond as students learn to know, to serve, and to believe.
