General School Mission

" Our mission is to lead students in becoming followers of Christ, and to develop and equip them to fulfill God's purpose in their lives.

Our desire is to meet a child's needs spiritually, academically, physically, and socially through an education founded upon a Christian worldview. As you browse through our school information, we hope you will gain a sense of who we are and what we desire for our students."
