  • Student learning is the focus of our organization, yet the faculty and staff will also be active learners in this community
  • A safe, respectful and supportive environment is essential for each individual to pursue personally challenging goals
  • The curriculum and instructional strategies will inspire and motivate students to learn.
  • Students achieve their best when they build on previous knowledge and skills, and apply their learning to issues of personal and global significance.
  • Continual goal-setting and reflection is essential to achieving personal and community growth.
  • Appreciation of cultural diversity is essential to promoting international understanding and responsible citizenship.
  • The education of each student is a responsibility shared by students, parents and teachers.
  • Total development of the child in a sound Christian environment is established on a sound, ethical, biblical foundation.
