What makes us unique

Safeguarding Dignity - Our choices throughout each level will be made in order to safeguard the dignity and value of students and our team. No need to worry about your toddler or your teen prancing around in next to nothing.  We begin as we mean to go in protecting each child's innocence. 

 

Servant Leadership - Students are propelled towards excellence through example not just words. Teachers are encouraging, uplifting and excellent examples to students inside and out of class. 

 

Seamless Experience - Students are given a seamless education with teacher’s trained to make each transition from level to level graceful and effortless.  It truly is a team effort around here!

Sharing the Gospel - We strive to share the gospel through actions and tone. This means that our peace, love and  encouragement stem from and lead students towards the love of God. 

 

Showing Value - We show each individual that they are valued and important. This is done throughout class, in our organization and communications styles and  through many special ways we surprise and connect with  students throughout the year.
