I sent my four daughters to this school and it was the best investment I made in their life! They are all in their thirties, serving God and they all have great occupations. They are able to provide for themselves and their faith is strong. The academics, athletics and spirituality in the school is top notch and the environment is both safe and friendly. A great Christian School!!
