General School Mission

"We believe. . .
• Children are a gift from God and should be handled with love and care.
• Children deserve a safe, positive, nurturing, and developmentally appropriate learning
environment that is free of fear, pressure to “grow up", or prejudice.
• Positive self-esteem promotes both personal growth and growth in a relationship with God.
• Education should be creative, innovative and in touch with the children and families of our community.
• Effective, certified teachers are the most important component of our ministry.
• Positive self-esteem and Christian moral values are best served with teachers who serve as positive role models to the child.

Our goals are . . .
• For all children to feel a warm sense of belonging in a safe, secure, loving environment and to insure each child feels welcomed and wanted.
• For each child to know that God is real and to aid each child in accepting Jesus Christ and developing a lifestyle built on this relationship.
• To help each child understand that God's Word (the Bible) is relevant and growth in knowledge of the Bible results in positive changes in attitudes, action and lifestyle.
• To support the family.
• To help each child develop strong academic skills through creative teaching and hands-on learning so that children are prepared in developmentally appropriate kindergarten readiness skills.
• To provide godly men and women who are professionally trained to be positive teachers and role models for children.
