This is a wonderful school for families whose priority is to teach their children a Christian, Bible-based worldview. I strongly support classical schools (do some research) and have been amazed by the students that graduate...they are grounded in academics and can articulate the reasoning behind their faith. I continue to be impressed by what the school offers (considering its size) and the teachers are top notch! Every time I visit, I want to stay and attend the omnibus classes, and participate in the conversation with these grounded and highly knowledgeable teachers. I haven't seen anything else that even comes close..the whole experience is unique, and the small size and style of teaching really lends itself to relationship building. If you want lots of bells and whistles then look elsewhere, but if your priority is solid academics and grounded spiritual teaching then you need to put this on your list.
