Mission Statement:

Our mission is to promote development of the physical, intellectual and spiritual talents of each child, empowering them to make wise choices based on eternal principles

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

We believe in the education of the whole person. We recognize each individual as a person of supreme worth. Education is not limited to the mere development of the intellect. The educational process continues throughout life. The home, school, church and community participate in this process of education.
We hold the Bible to be the infallible frame of reference by which truth is measured. Its central message depicts the creation, the fall of mankind, and the restoration of humanity through Jesus Christ.

We view Jesus, His life, and His death on the cross, as the center of our hopes for the present and the future. He provides the perfect model in life and is the only means by which our restoration can take place.

We recognize that unselfish service is an integral part of Christian development. With increasing education comes a growing responsibility for service to others.

We believe in developing our appreciation for beauty both in God's creation and human expression. We encourage our students to re-express God's beauty in creative ways.

We view the body as the temple of God and realize the close connection between spiritual and physical health. Healthful living is essential for a growing capacity to know and love God.

We believe that developing a sense of respect for parents and others in responsible positions will foster respect and reverence for God.
