Our goal is to teach children the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Our purpose is to instill God’s principles in our children and to inspire them to be life-long followers of Jesus Christ, doing His will. We present opportunities and experiences for emotional, physical, social, and spiritual growth, hoping for a better future for our children.
NOTE: Registration for the 2021-22 school year begins FEBRUARY 1st!

Every child is special in God’s sight, deserving to be loved, cared for and permitted to develop at their own rate. Christian principles and values are best taught to young children by example. Nothing is more important to an individual’s development than a healthy relationship with Christ. In order to learn, children must gain confidence in God-given abilities. Children learn by doing and should be allowed to express their own creativity through work and play.
Education should be fun and exciting. The most important lesson in the early years is learning to love and trust the Lord. Following Jesus, children gain a complete sense of purpose for their life; their focus will be on their individual gifts and talents.
In addition to appropriate academic activities, we expose kids to Bible stories and prayer to encourage faith in God and promote appreciation for one another. While incorporating many Bible stories and verses, we also utilize the A-Beka Bible curriculum, built on a foundation of academic excellence and Christian character training. The teaching materials reflect the best in traditional education, comprehensive curriculum and eternal truths.
