Purpose

Believing teaching is their calling, each faculty member is committed to guiding individual students in discovering new interests, developing and utilizing their talents, and deepening their faith in the process. Being a small school with big opportunities allows for countless choices-as an Upper School student is digging into a college-level math class, they may also be performing in the school musical while playing a varsity sport. Most importantly, we provide every opportunity for students to grow their Christian faith through Bible study, chapel, small groups, spiritual retreats, community service, and mission trips.


Mission statement

We prepare global leaders while making a difference in the world for Christ.
