Philosophy

We see, serve, awaken, and empower our students as they discover who they are in Christ and what they were created to do.

  • We empower our students to share their faith with friends and family.

  • We awaken our students to discover their role in God's story.

  • We serve our students what they need, where they are, today.

  • We see potential in every person.


Curriculum

We are in the process of becoming a certified school by the Haitian Ministry of Education. But, because true education is more than reading and writing, we’ve developed the 1:17 Curriculum. Through its use of storytelling, art, music, and drama, our students are learning about God’s heart in unique ways while exploring ways to leverage their own talents for His purpose.


Portrait of a Graduate

Even though each student has a unique future ahead of them, they will all graduate with four key attributes:

  1. A strong academic foundation
  2. Knowledge that they are prodigies with unique roles in God’s story
  3. The ability to lead with wisdom, courage, honesty, respect, humility, and a servant’s heart
  4. A foundation of truth set in God’s word and a spirit shaped by the vision of Isaiah 1:17

Graduate Vision

Upon graduation, we see our students pursuing one of three paths:

Scholars

Students who want to pursue higher education as they’re equipped to realize dreams of being doctors, nurses, teachers, business leaders, politicians, and lawyers.

Apprentices

Students who have the potential to revitalize local economies through skills and talents ranging from pottery to plumbing to developing new farming techniques.

Activists

Students who have strong desires to right the wrongs of injustice in their communities across the globe through church planting and nonprofit work.


graduate support

In order to help our students realize their dreams, we are taking action by:

  • Creating a scholarship fund for promising students wishing to go to college
  • Developing apprenticeship opportunities by locking arms with other nonprofits, lending institutions, and trade schools
  • Starting a Leadership Academy in 2028 for graduates with a desire to become church planters, nonprofit workers, and missionaries
