Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning Children are a gift from God, and they come to us with different talents and abilities. Small class sizes allow teachers to give more individual attention to students. Language Arts and Mathematics are leveled so that each student can be taught at his/her appropriate instructional level. Our goal is for students to grow academically, spiritually, physically, and emotionally each year.
Academic themes / Areas of focus General - school does not emphasize one particular subject
