School Notes

At the core of every academic institution is the pursuit of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. They are, in fact, a progression in the growth experience. It is one thing to have knowledge and understanding; applying it in a way that benefits family, society, and God's kingdom requires wisdom. We hope to create a life-changing experience for our students and broader school community. We want to offer activities to allow the heart, soul, and body to flourish.
