Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Train up a child the way he should go; and when he is old he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6)
Train the whole child: spiritually, mentally, physically and socially.
Train each child in basic skills necessary to meet life’s challenges and accept responsibility.
Instill within each child, a sense of worth, strong character, integrity and respect for authority.
Motivate and challenge each child to participate to their fullest potential in everything they do.
We believe that children should be taught with love; that they are precious to God, and are our greatest gift from God. We teach children to treat others as they would like to be treated.
We instill in each child, respect for oneself as well as respect for parents, teachers, community workers and others in positions of authority."
