We exist to make disciples of Jesus Christ through a biblical school environment that prepares students to glorify God spiritually, academically, and socially.

Our social standard is the very highest — to serve others in love. We create opportunities for students as well as families to experience community and grow in their roles. Students will learn to understand the importance of serving and loving others as disciples of Jesus Christ.
We believe that excellence brings glory to God.
