Classes include technology, science, Christian education, Spanish, music, studio art, library and physical education. An average class size of 10 to 12 students allows teachers and students more personal interaction as they explore the broad, integrated curriculum.
The Academy welcomes students of any race, color, creed, and national or ethnic origin. As a community, we foster an enriching and diverse educational environment so that we may discover the distinct possibilities in every child through character, faith and intellect.
Our students participate in the observance of religious holidays and attend weekly Chapel services. The School encourages faith in God and belief in a Judeo-Christian system of values, including respect for God, for others, for other faith traditions, and for self; the importance of compassion and caring for others; a commitment towards community; and a responsibility to develop and share the gifts that make each person unique.
