We are credentialed, Christian teachers who help our students grow at every level, preparing them to meet their own challenges, no matter how small or how large, each and every day. We are grateful to all parents who trust us to teach and nurture their children.

Bible stories are interwoven within these characteristics of faith. Weekly chapels are led by the Pastors and our Family Life Minister.
