in education can best be provided in the context of a day-by-day relationship
We believe that knowledge
of our world is important, but that it is the knowledge of the love of
God through Jesus Christ that makes our lives worthwhile.
We are dedicated to providing
a thorough training in all the basic subjects. We are also concerned
that emphasis be placed on teaching children to do what is right and to
deal with others in loving concern.
