Beginning with the end in mind, we endeavor to develop students who:

• Love the Lord their God with all of their heart, soul, mind, and strength.

• Demonstrate mature Christian character and virtue.

• Possess the ability to live and think with truth, wisdom, and excellence.

• Are equipped to listen carefully, reason wisely, think precisely, and articulate persuasively.
