What we strive for.


We center our lives around God’s grace and love. We worship God in daily devotions, prayer, and weekly chapel services. Children learn the story of Jesus’ love for us in religion classes. We put our faith into action in service projects and in the way we live with one another every day.

Academically rigorous

We provide challenging academics in an environment responsive to the unique needs of our students. Through individualized attention and support, our students consistently test well above national averages and are admitted into prestigious, college-preparatory high schools throughout the area.


We teach children to care for one another and for our world. We support and encourage them to be servant leaders, always striving to be an example for others. Whether in the classroom or on the playground, we guide our students as they learn to serve, stand up for each other, and take responsibility for their actions.
