Excellence – by all, in all things.
“…whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31b
Holistic education – enabling children to develop physically, socially, emotionally, academically and spiritually.
“Let this endurance complete its work so that you maybe fully mature, complete, and lacking in nothing.” James 1:4
Family partnerships – working with and supporting care-givers in their role as the child’s primary educator.
“Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:12
