Educating Minds. Nurturing Hearts.

Seventh Grade

“I love everything about our school. Our Christian environment is unlike anywhere else. Our classes are like families. our teachers are great and our Bible teacher has helped us all grow much deeper in our faith. Our sports programs are so much fun. I love getting to hang out with people that I don’t see everyday. Overall, this school has changed my life forever.”  –  7th grader
