Port Haven has been such a blessing to our daughter, who is in 9th grade. The smaller class sizes allow for real mentorship and guidance. There have been so many activities and trips outside of the school, which provides a well rounded learning experience. The staff is communicative, responsive, professional, and kind. They truly care about the students hearts and, most importantly, their walk with Jesus. 10/10 recommend!

My son is a sixth grade student here at Port Haven International Academy (formerly known as Agape International Academy). We have been very happy this year with both the academics and the student engagement. The teachers regularly take time to get the students out of the classroom for more hands-on learning. My son has had plenty of science classes outside or in the kitchen. They've taken field trips to historic places, both locally and a few hours away. They have an activity for the kids once a month, which is a fun social time for them to bond. They also do a lot of community service around the area, cleaning up the parks and teaching the students about the environment. My favorite thing is that they're focused not only on academics; they focus a lot on character development, and self-discipline for the students, which is a blessing.

Port Haven has been a wonderful experience for our son. He has matured this year in his thinking, organizational skills and learned many new things, which will prepare him to be a successful adult and continue his academic career if he so chooses. He looks forward to school every day, not only to see friends he has made but to learn as well.
