Our Beliefs

We believe that every child is an individual person who has been blessed by God with special gifts of personality, intellect, physical ability, and individual talent.  The environment and experiences that are provided at the school are designed to nurture these God-given abilities, while assisting each child in learning to live and work in harmony with others.  It is the purpose of the school to expose each student to the Bible and to teach the revelation of God through His son, Jesus Christ, and the principles of His Kingdom.  The religious instruction that is offered will be positive and continuous, and will facilitate the development of a personal relationship with God.
