Academic Program

Student
The Educational Program includes a rigorous and balanced curriculum that nurtures not only cognitive/thinking skills but also the religious, creative, expressive, artistic, imaginative, social, and personal lives of the children. We want our students to be creative and original thinkers who use their imaginations as they grow in their basic skills. We guide them to be flexible and adaptable, able to initiate as well as apply their knowledge and understanding in new and unfamiliar situations.
 
These skills and competencies are not easily measured on any kind of standardized test; rather, they are the foundation for our students’ future.
