Students pray in the Bible class and at meal times.

How does the school accommodate non-religious students or students of a different religion?

Religious instruction using the Bible is required by all students whether they are believers or not. Private church attendance is not required as that is a personal act of faith. Our philosophy is to make the children aware of religion and to leave the choice as to which religion to follow to them and their family.

Teaching approach of the school

School is not a factory. Each students should be approached with Dignity, Honor, Respect and Integrity. Small classes allow teachers to have time to assist each student on an individual basis. Small classes allow students to have the time to address the teacher on a daily basis - they don't have to walk away not knowing what they need to know.
