Vision

As a Christian community, we:

  • Profess faith in God as our Creator, and interweave God’s infallible Word — the Old and the New Testaments — into the teaching of all subjects.
  • Acknowledge Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, and affirm Christ as Lord in all areas of life.
  • Believe the Holy Spirit is working among us, and encourage each student to discover his or her unique gifts and respond to God’s guidance.
