Mission Statement 
The goal of this Christian academic program is to assist in the preparation of each student for this life and beyond and to ignite and sustain love for God and excitement for learning.

Our Philosophy 
We will provide a competitive educational program in the humanities, the arts, physical education, mathematics, and science. Since our youth are to be the light of the world and the salt of the earth, our program goes beyond mere academics. With respect to our faith we consider ourselves to be copartners with the parents and the church in fulfillment of the most important role entrusted to humanity--the raising of our children as reflections of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Our talented and dedicated administrators, teachers, and staff are committed to presenting our students with academic programs designed to challenge their bodies, minds, and hearts to help realize their highest potential. To this end, we encourage Christ-centered development socially, academically, physically and spiritually.

Our Objectives
  • To provide a spiritual atmosphere in which prayer, worship, and obedience to the will of God is the ideal and accepted pattern of living
  • To lead the students to a friendship with God by introducing them to their dearest friend Jesus, by showing them the value of following God's plan for their lives, and by providing the students with opportunities for personal witness
  • To assist parents in helping their children form a noble Christian character
  • To stimulate mental excellence and high scholarship
  • To develop habits of accuracy and discernment
  • To demonstrate the necessity of respect for subordinates, peers, and leaders
  • To demonstrate the necessity of integrity and dependability
  • To develop an atmosphere of purity and high morals in human relationships
  • To instill the value and dignity of manual labor as well as mental labor
  • To promote the understanding and practice of the principles of healthful living in order to properly develop the body, the mind, and the soul
  • To instill Christian attitudes toward standards of dress and personal appearance
  • To develop a desirable personality by encouraging the students to look to Jesus and His personality, thus giving them an understanding of their own attitudes and helping them to gain a Christ-centered self-concept
