School Notes

PRESCHOOL:
Our Preschool provides a positive, stimulating introduction to classroom education in a warm and loving learning environment. It is developmentally appropriate for our youngest learners, contains a play-based curriculum, and prepares our little Vikings for a smooth transition into Kindergarten.

KINDERGARTEN:
In Kindergarten, each day will be filled with exciting adventures to help your child develop academically, spiritually, and socially. Our kindergarten curriculum is challenging; yet fun, and provides play activities and learning experiences to prepare them for a smooth transition into 1st grade.

1st-8th:
Our elementary grades offer a challenging curriculum with a proven record of scholastic excellence. Our qualified, dedicated faculty help each student reach their full potential. We offer a unique balance of education & faith with an emphasis on Christian values and building a strong spiritual foundation. We do more than prepare students for tests in the classroom. We prepare them for the tests in life.
