Absolutely! Classical and Christian education is a tried and true method of teaching children according to their abilities and strengths. Children love to be challenged and stretched, and our well-trained teachers balance this with love and kindness. Click on the Student Life tab for information on electives and activites, or click on the Academics tab to see how carefully our curriculum is integrated horizontally (through the year) and vertically (from grade K to 12).

We are pleased to offer many opportunities for your child to grow: field trips, boys' and girls' sports, FCA, drama, orchestra, choir, drawing, painting, debate, mock trial, Science Olympiad, and several student clubs. There are also informal opportunities to enjoy other families in after school play, book clubs, and fellowship. Whether the children are competing, planning, or just playing, we want to encourage them to delight in all that God has given them and to use these opportunities for His glory.
