Our curriculum includes Bible classes, foundations of Christianity, and church history, as well as a weekly chapel, where we focus on local and world missions. Other classes are taught from a Christian worldview, and we strive to be a community that follows the teachings of Jesus Christ. While we are a Christian school, we are not affiliated with any church or denomination, and our families represent a wide range of faith traditions.

How do parents fulfill their service requirement?

You are welcome to pick the activity that best suits your talents and abilities or suggest a special interest you have. We will record and keep track of each family's service hours. You must complete your 30 hours on or before the last day of school.
