  • As a parent, you want your child to grow up with beliefs that are consistent with your family's values.
  • Messiah School provides an environment where Christian ideals are lifted up as children learn about the world that God has created for them.
  • Children and families learn that they have an alternative to the values and lifestyles that are commonly demonstrated in popular culture.
  • In the process, they are taught that they are loved, they have a purpose in life, and that it is possible to live with Christian character in a modern world.

School Notes

  • Providing the gift of faith, knowledge and direction is one of the most important things we do for our children. You make a significant investment in your child when you pick a Christian day school for their formal education. It is an investment in eternity for your child and for those with whom they will connect throughout their life! 
  • At Messiah, your child will be equipped for success in all aspects of life. Not only will they achieve great things in their coursework, but they will also grow to be outstanding young Christian leaders along the way, viewing their world through a Christ-centered lens. 
  • We look forward to welcoming your family to Messiah, growing together, working together, celebrating together, and serving together.
