School Notes

  • Our Mission: To assist parents and evangelical churches by providing a Biblically-based educational program that instills a whole-hearted love of the Lord Jesus Christ, develops Godly character, and emphasizes academic excellence.
  • Philosophy: Christian education is the process whereby the student is taught to learn to observe things from God's perspective and to conduct his life in a manner which is consistent with God's revealed truth (Psalms 25:5; Proverbs 16:13, 23:23; John 1:14 & 17; 14:6; II Timothy 2:15). The School is committed to academic excellence in helping students to develop their abilities to learn and discover truth, which can only be properly understood in the context of God's Word and in the example of the Lord Jesus Christ.//We celebrate each student`s gifts: honors, Advanced Placement, and Duel Enrollment options (by 11th grade). Additional opportunities such as regional competitions for music and academics through Association of Christian Schools International.//Spiritual Growth:  Biblical integration in all classes, Bible class, worship team, service outreach, missions, prayer buddies, and weekly chapels.// Extra -Curricular opportunities: We have a variety of athletic options: Soccer, Basketball, Cross-Country, and Volleyball.  Additional academic options: Spanish (PreK-12), Lego Robotics, Journalism, Creative Writing, and Debate.  We also focus on the arts through a music program, including a band, worship team, choir, hand bells and chimes, private lessons (piano, violin, guitar, and various other band instruments).
