  • It is our honor as a church school to provide your child with a wholesome, educational experience.  Children grow in the admonition of the Lord to fulfill their God given purpose.  We academically challenge them via our college preparatory curriculum while providing opportunities for techinical/career courses.

School Reviews

As a Christian school, we can design instruction to personalize attention through smaller class sizes in order to not only meet state standards, but to exceed those state standards. This is a position of strength, particularly when you consider that we exceed the standards for today's fast paced learning with a biblical worldview.
