A Word

From Our Administrator

“Our goal is to impact the lives of children in such a way that causes them to seek after God and glorify him in all they do. We stand firm on Proverbs 22:6 that states, ‘Train up a child in the way he/she should go and when they are old they will not turn from it.’ We strive to instill Christ-like character in our students and also teach them to apply scripture to their daily lives.”
