Christian Education

We believe in Christian Education of the “total” child through the use of Biblical guidance and academic/developmentally appropriate activities. Students build on concept formation through learning, problem-solving, logical thinking and imagination. A Biblical approach to character development is utilized, focusing on self-awareness, cooperative behavior, responsibility and self-confidence.
