Christian Education for Life

We help students navigate the rocky high school years.

Our teachers don't just teach, they invest in the lives of their students. We prepare students for college and whatever journey God has planned for their lives.

Christian Education for Life

We educate students not just for college acceptances, but for a meaningful life of learning and serving their Savior in whatever journey God has planned for them. From personal growth in faith huddles to the academic rigor of science courses, from developing skills in athletics to learning to serve each other despite our differences; we understand the challenges high school students face, and we value mentoring students throughout these sometimes rocky years.

AT&T Tower

The tall structure at the south end of our building is a cell tower for AT&T. People ask us what the structure is, and when they find out is an AT&T cell tower, they ask when it is going to be ready. That question was asked of a technician this past week as he was working in the structure. He said, if everything goes well, that the tower could be live by Christmas. So, if you live in the area around school, your Christmas gift might be a cell tower that is functioning.
