General School Mission

"Our mission is to provide our students with the highest quality education integrated with a solid spiritual grounding. We believe that these two elements go hand in hand. Together they enable students to develop a vital balance between academic, social, emotional, physical and spiritual excellence. Our goal is to provide our children with a strong foundation for a full and meaningful Christ-centered life.
