“Providing a Quality Education that is Christ-Centered”
Chief Administrator - Mrs. Barbara C. Williams
Motto or Verse: "Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ." Ephesians 4:15
Mission Statement: To provide a quality education that is Christ centered.
Goals: We desire to provide an education that possesses academic excellence, spiritual depth, and moral integrity; that trains students in the knowledge of and obedience to the Scriptures and promotes loyalty to God; that prepares students for Godly participation in the American society; and that prepares students for a continuing education.
Special Features: Certified teachers; classes in Spanish, art, music, instrumental music lessons, library, physical education, computer, learning support, and enrichment classes; preschool; National Junior Honor Society; yearbook; sports program. K-8 students wear uniforms.
Enrollment Information: We start accepting applications in January for the next school year that begins in September. Parents are interviewed before acceptance, and students are tested once application has been submitted and approved. Early application is important as there are waiting lists for some grades.
Accreditation/Membership: Association of Christian Schools International, charter member and accredited K-8. Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, member and accredited P-8.

Discipline: We believe that discipline as discipleship is at the "heart" of education. We as teachers and administrators are to be training and making "disciples," (Matt. 28:20) and modeling good behavior. Our goal in correction and discipline is to help each child see his lost and sinful state and to know the true hope that is found in the change that can come only from Christ and His standards.
