From the Director:

Our mission at The Academy at Griffin Harbor is to nurture the “whole child” in areas of physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual development. This will be achieved through providing a variety of activities that are developmentally appropriate and recognize the individual needs and differences of each child. We will implement these skills through Christian principles and teacher-assisted and directed activities. Our children are always encouraged to be independent thinkers and life-long learners.
