The school will be k4-12 but currently serves 600 students grades, K4, K4, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 6th and 9th.

We believe all students, regardless of their background, can succeed as learners. To help students succeed, we have a longer school day and school year, we offer a wide variety of support and extracurricular, and we've hired exceptional faculty from around the globe. As a Christian school, we teach and model Jesus's love and forgiveness.
