Servant leadership is built into our curriculum at each grade level.

We desire for students to develop a personal relationship with Jesus and to understand their unique roles in His kingdom plan. We work towards an understanding of their true identity in Christ through an environment where they can experience the deep love of the Father for themselves.  We do accomplish our goal by intentionally training students to serve others through peer mentorship, discipleship, and community service.

Chapel

Our vision is to bring each of our children into a transformational encounter with Jesus Christ.  One way we accomplish this goal is through our weekly chapel service.  During these services, students experience a time of corporate worship and Christ focused, inspirational teaching.
Chapel services aren’t just faculty and staff led.  Students are encouraged to lead in our Praise Band, as guest speakers and behind the scenes.  It is our hope that our weekly gatherings help our students to understand and live out their lives from a Biblical perspective, identifying their unique gifts and talents so that they might impact the world for Jesus Christ.
