About Us

Get to know more about what makes us different.

A Christian School is an extension of the Christian home.  Common consistent morals and values, reinforced by the family, church and school, help develop stability within children (Proverbs 22:6).  The foundation of our philosophy is that all truth, regardless of subject or content, comes from God because God is truth.  Jesus said, “I am the way the TRUTH and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”  -  John 14:6.
We invite you to be a part of this process of training, equipping, and teaching as much as you possibly can. We look forward to partnering with you in these areas, because like you, we want to help our students have a bright future. Thank you in advance, for trusting us with your most precious of treasures. We cannot wait to see the heights that your child will reach as we link arms with you in their education.
