Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning We teach the skills for effective comprehension, communication, and computation. We strive to stimulate independent, creative and critical thinking, and an appreciation of lifelong learning. Meeting the needs of the whole child is foundational to our philosophy, “to lead each student toward a relationship with Jesus Christ and encourage each one to reach his or her unique potential in Christ – academically, spiritually, socially, physically, and creatively.”
