Children are naturally curious, and we strive to fuel that interest in learning by how we approach our curriculum and by providing access to an open concept library; a safe, gated playground; outdoor classrooms; and a large STEAM classroom.

Program highlights:

  • Our Kindergarten program is uniquely designed to help students successfully transition to Lower School through personalized instruction.
  • The core curriculum for Bible, reading, writing, math, science, and social studies is taught from a Christian worldview and aligned from Preschool through Grade 8.

Lower School

Grades 1 – 5

A place to grow in knowledge and in service.

As a private Christian school, our academics also incorporate character development. We teach Bible as a core subject and each grade level has an age-appropriate mission population that they serve yearly. In addition to academic instruction, your child will understand the peace that comes from using their talents in service of others.

Program highlights:

  • Bible is taught daily as a core subject with a Christ-centered worldview woven throughout all core content areas, including reading, writing, math, science, and social studies.
  • Students are challenged to develop meaningful and relevant leadership skills, including communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity — all taught through a Biblical lens.
  • In addition to a variety of extracurricular offerings, Lower School students explore their unique strengths, skills, and callings through daily enrichment classes, such as art, foundations, library, music, P.E., and STEAM.

Middle School

Grades 6 – 8

Academic excellence and personal responsibility.

Personal responsibility is a crucial skill to lead a successful life. Middle School students have daily Personal Responsibility Time designed to help them develop a commitment to creating and attaining goals they set for themselves. This is also a time for students to grow in their executive functioning skills to track and complete homework, projects and other class assignments. Each student is encouraged to be an advocate for their learning, and they are given the opportunity to meet with teachers for additional support during this time if needed.

Program highlights:

  • Middle School students are challenged to recognize the value of the learning process and to engage in research, service, and projects to solidify their learning.
  • Students are taught to move from concrete to abstract thought and critical thinking.
  • Christian truth is shared in both intentional and spontaneous moments, and students are guided to know not only who God is, but also who He made them to be.
