Do you remember the story Jesus told about the two builders – one of whom built his house on sand and the other who built his house on the rock? The whole purpose of the story was about the importance of beginning with a solid foundation. This is just as important in education as it is in construction. Understanding we are created in God’s image, that he loves us, and has a purpose for our lives is our cornerstone. We build on this by focusing on growth in reading comprehension and math skills. We continue our building by broadening the imagination through the exploration of science. We learn to create through exposure to music, drama, and the visual arts. We experience life through curriculum-based field trips, and, through our STEM studies, envision what the world of tomorrow might look like.

Reading comprehension and math skills are critical for academic success. They are important factors for the imagination to be exercised through the exploration of science. We learn to create through exposure to music, drama, and the visual arts. We experience life through curriculum-based field trips, and, through our STEM studies, envision the world of tomorrow.

Our goal is to see them leave our elementary school prepared for the rigors of our middle and high schools and with the desire to continue their growth in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man.
