We cover the academic areas of Reading, Language, Spelling, Math, Science, Social Studies and Bible. However, we are much more! We believe the child must be a well rounded, balanced learner. Each student brings unique talents and needs to the classroom. We work toward helping and motivating each child to meet his or her full potential.

It's never too early to start thinking about where your child will be attending school in the fall! We know your child's education is important to you and we want to help you make an informed decision! We will be hosting an open house on Thursday, February 18th from 6:00-7:00 p.m. The school and classrooms will be open to come visit, talk with teachers and discuss curriculum. If you are unable to make it that night, you can also call ahead to set up a tour of the school during a school day! We look forward to seeing you there!
