Our students have been accepted into top private schools, state university honors programs and out-of-state public institutions. The V.I.N.E.

  • SPIRITUAL: In addition to every course being intentionally instructed from a distinctly Christian worldview, our students experience daily Bible classes and devotionals, weekly Chapels and small discipleship groups. Students drive our Chapels and are engaged with the planning and production each week.
