I have four children at this school, spanning in age from the youngest grades to high school. The way the teachers know & love their students and teach their subjects is beautiful. We came to the school for the classical Christian curriculum, but we've stayed at the school because of the community of parents and students. When you have to walk through hard things, they will show up to support you. When you have joys, they will celebrate with you. It has been such a blessing to our family!

The community at this school is beyond compare! The families come alongside one another to walk through the joys and sorrows of life, and they partner in parenting. The teachers love the students extremely well, and they do an excellent job of speaking to the heart of a child if discipline is needed. The curriculum is among the best in the city without a doubt.
