Our classes (except foreign language) are taught in English, and we use an American-style program that addresses the whole person, is Biblically based, recognizes all truth is God’s truth, emphasizes sharing the Gospel and discipleship, and encourages Biblical thinking and living.

  • Year-round activities: servant leadership council, chapel, homeroom
  • Fall activities: school-start social, camp, for 8th graders: girls’ cross-country and volleyball / boys’ cross-country
  • Winter activities: science fair, banquet, spirit week, service week, for 8th graders: girls’ basketball and cheerleading / boys’ basketball
  • Spring activities: 8th grade trip, for 8th graders: girls’ soccer and track / boys’ soccer and track, athletic banquet
