Intuitively, parents know that a heavy academic load does not equate to healthy adolescence. Yes, we are proud of our ambitious academic program—and we believe there are crucial outcomes for our students that are just as important as test scores and academic honors.
By the time children head for high school, how well will they know themselves? Will they recognize their unique gifts and strengths? Will they understand how they learn best? Will they have developed the strong character to make good choices? Will they feel connected to other people and to the world at large? Will they revere God? Will they feel equipped to handle life’s challenges and resist peer pressure? Will they be uplifted by a sense of hopefulness and purpose? Will they be kind? These are the qualities that enable children to lead satisfying lives, as well as successful ones.
Every facet of our programming is designed to support your child’s healthy development—intellectually, socially, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Character lessons based on the biblical “fruit of the Spirit” infuse social-emotional lessons throughout the day. Bible class, daily devotionals, prayer, and weekly Chapel services support children’s spiritual formation. P.E. and an array of sports offerings give students opportunities to exercise, participate, and compete. Wellness lessons based on the latest research teach students about the risks of smoking, vaping, alcohol, drugs, pornography, and cyber-threats. Our small-group advisory program provides a safe haven of structured downtime for students to connect and for caring adults to monitor their wellbeing. Students even learn effective ways to cope with stress, assisted at times by a Cavalier King Charles named Rey, our campus comfort dog.
