Great Christian Prep school. Diverse student body and faculty. Prepares students for college, their community and beyond. Staff genuinely cares for the students and clearly loves what they do. I`ve had a daughter transfer in at 9th Grade and a young one attend from preschool on. Both have strong Christian values and a phenomenal education base to prepare them for any career field they choose.
