  • Our Mission: To make disciples of Jesus Christ who will be equipped spiritually, socially, and academically to further God's kingdom in this world.
  • Why Our School: At Avilla Christian we believe each child is fearfully and wonderfully made. Ephesians 2:10 says "For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." All children have immense potential and value. We help them grasp this and engage in the process of becoming what God designed them to be. How do we do this? We focus on growth in three critical realms: spiritual, social, and academic. Like Jesus, we accept kids where they are, but like Jesus, we do not leave them where they are. We insist on continuous development and growth in each critical realm. Our school is doubly accredited; our teachers are state licensed; and each one provides a loving model of what it means to follow Jesus in discipleship and growth.

We have been with Avilla Christian for several years now and I would choose no other place for my children! They are involved, growing spiritually and academically everyday. The biggest draw for us is the confidence my children have gained since attending Avilla Christian, this means the world to me in a world that is not so nice!

The 2017-2018 school year was amazing. The upper grades were restructured and the curriculum updated. In addition, new staff was brought in that is well accredited and know what they are doing. 2018-2019 school year I expect to be even better. This year they have expanded staff as well. This school has had a rough few past years but they are on track and doing great things for the kids academically and spiritually
