A Welcome Message from our Director

We are excited to welcome our new and returning students for the new school year. Our main purpose is to provide a school that focuses on academic excellence with a faith based foundation.

If you are returning, welcome back!  If you are new, or still looking for the right spot for your child, please call me to set up a tour and meet our certified teachers.  We'd love to meet you and see if your child would benefit from our program
