Because it is our mission to provide an excellent school program in which children are able “To increase in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man;” we have chosen to hire only high-quality staff. We know that parents have high expectations of our staff because of the daily influence they have on the emotional health and spiritual well-being of your child, as well as their academic progress.

All our teachers are credentialed and our classroom teachers hold master’s degrees in education. They have a love for working with children and a passion for introducing them to Jesus on a daily basis. Planning a campus visit is the best way to learn more about our staff and the excellent environment they craft for our students. They are eager to see how they can meet your goals for your child’s education.
