Our academic program consists of the normal subjects such as English, Math, Science, Social Studies, etc. We also provide a balanced education by exposing the students to the fine arts, such as drawing and music. Being a Christian school, we mandate that students take classes that would broaden their understanding of the Bible and the role it plays in their lives. We also provide students opportunities to use technology in and out of the classroom to prepare them for the digital world. Physical fitness and health are essential to the students' well being and are mandatory classes for them. As you can see, the School wants to provide a "comprehensive" education for the student.
