Our goal is to build relationships and go on mission together.


Our school culture is marked by family values. We intentionally welcome every staff member, student, and parent into our school family and make them feel like they belong. Our family is their family. How we do it:

  • We build meaningful relationships with students by doing the “little things.” We shake hands, greet students by name, and learn their stories.

  • We send serving teams to provide annual health screenings to our staff and students.

  • We gather as a staff team to eat together once per month.

  • We track student attendance and advocate for long-term retention with parents.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
— Maya Angelou

We believe our students are full of potential. We inspire our students with a grander vision for their lives by painting a picture of how they can impact their families, community, and world. How we do it:

  • We create and implement culturally relevant, Bible-based character curriculum.

  • We leverage camp, creative arts, and after-school programming to open students’ eyes to new things.

  • We enter into intentional conversations on injustice and share biblical truth.

  • We help students identify opportunities to impact their family, community, and world.

For we are God’s masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
— The Apostle Paul

We equip people to discover their purpose, develop their individual skills and talents, and step into their role in God’s story. We help our staff and students develop holistically within the context of a loving community. How we do it:

  • We invest in our students’ spiritual development through discipleship relationships and Bible education.

  • We encourage social development in our students by modeling healthy conflict, debate, and reconciliation.

  • We care for our student's’ emotional needs by providing mentoring and counseling when needed.

  • We inspire intellectual growth in our students by running weekly academic competitions and challenges.

  • We develop leadership skills in our students by conducting training workshops with real-life application.

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.
— Martin Luther King Jr.

Empowerment happens when education meets opportunity. We create opportunities for our students to learn, apply, and experience new things both inside and outside of the classroom. How we do it:

  • We provide creative arts and sports programming to our students after school.

  • We send our students outside school walls on field trips.

  • We lead service learning projects and participate in experiential learning activities on a regular basis.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.
— Nelson Mandela
