Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning Our elementary program begins with our preschool program that prepares students for first grade and beyond. Our program features a challenging and developmentally appropriate curriculum, both christian and secular texts. We are intentional and plan our curriculum guides to ensure students receive a solid education that meets or exceeds the current public school standards. What sets us apart from neighboring schools is a strong biblical worldview.
