  • We want students to learn how to be in the world, but not of the world.This is not a school focused on becoming a shelter from the world. Rather, it`s a place where students learn what it means to be salt and light in today's world.
  • It`s a place where students learn their true identity in Christ.
  • It`s a place where unchurched students can safely explore their faith in God, and come to know God`s love at a personal level.
  • It`s a place where students take ownership of their Christian faith, gain a critical understanding of religions, and develop a healthy biblical worldview.

It`s a place where audacious faith is embraced, students are encouraged to dream big, and a God-driven life is celebrated.Our academic goal is to equip and inspire every student to become college-bound focused, lifelong learners, effective communicators, creative souls, and servant leaders.
  • Academic excellence will not be compromised.  Students will learn godly leadership, responsibility, integrity, and a strong work ethic.
  • Students will develop the necessary personal disciplines in preparation for college. Every student will become comfortable using cutting-edge technology.We want them to discover the divine partnership of God working through them that produces greater results.
  • The end goal is to strategically position students for the very best college, university, venture, or military service of their choice, and to see them excel in that career path with confidence and integrity as a disciple of Christ.We want our students to develop the relational skills to work with others in team and group settings.
