Their personal relationship with God and their personal responsibilities to family, church, and community, which show character development, are of primary concern. Our mission is to produce Christ-centered students with the values, knowledge, and skills required to impact tomorrow`s world. Going forward our mission cry is: "Equipped to excel through Christ- changing our generation."
