                                                                               Our goals for each of our students:
 
 

“Seeking to glorify God through Christ centered teaching, academic excellence,

and Christian service all in a distinctly loving and nurturing environment.”

 

It is our goal to provide many concrete experiences that will help your child develop the foundational skills that lead to success in the later years.

We do this while focusing on Christian values and biblical principles that will transform children into learners, leaders, and lovers of Christ.


It is important to us that your child has a quality learning experience

while developing a positive relationship with God, friends and their teachers

so they will have a love for school in the years to come.
