Academics

Our mission is to educate our students from a biblically based worldview in a Christian environment. Believing that the primary mission of education is the development of a distinctly Christian soul, we team with parents and guardians, teachers, staff, students, and the body of Christ to promote the development of spiritual maturity, academic excellence, and athletic achievement.

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.

John 13:34-35
