School Notes

  • We are excited to share our beautiful facility and programs with you. We have an awesome place for children to learn. Most importantly, God`s word is taught in its truth and purity. Children learn of the power of God to save, and that their power comes from God who has judged them righteous in their Savior Jesus Christ. Such a powerful message that we get to share. We provide an excellent well-rounded education for all students. It is our mission to assist you (parents) in this critical stage of your child`s growth to maturity. Consider discussing your child`s education with me.
