Although we place great value on students excelling in academics, the arts and in athletic competition, we believe it is essential to their overall development to know who they are in Christ. This discovery process enables students to understand their uniqueness and how to apply knowledge gained in life-application decisions and meaningful service for Christ and mankind.
Each grade is required to fulfill at least one service project a year, and the entire school participates in various clothing and food drives throughout the year.
