Tuition & Fees

At the heart of all we do is the desire to provide a strong academic environment from a biblical worldview while strengthening the family relationship. Your child will discover his or her God-given potential, make lifelong friends, learn to serve, and graduate ready to make a difference in their community and around the world.
