General School Mission

"Our mission is to assist families in bringing each child to a knowledge of and personal relationship with Jesus. This is done by providing an effective, Christ-centered, academic program, and by employing a variety of instructional aids, methods and materials that provide for creative teaching to reach the whole child-spiritual, mental, physical, social and emotional.
