Excellence in Service- Our students are encouraged to be servants,not only in their home and school, but also in the community. Many of our programs help facilitate service to the community. Our students are very involved in community service activities. Here are a few of the areas in which they serve:

We are also proud to be community based. Our student body represents more than 30 different church and denominations.
