Student Life Overview

Home / Student Life / Student Life Overview

Our students’ physical, mental, and emotional health and safety is our highest priority, and our committed teachers, counselors, and volunteers help our students thrive.  Our classrooms provide a safe and inclusive culture where all students can grow and thrive.  We emphasize the importance of healthy relationships among students and with staff.  Our unified PreK-12 campus offers opportunities for friendship, mentoring, and discipling.  Elementary classroom buddies read and attend chapel together, and Prek-12 Faith Families meet monthly for worship and service projects.  Some of the best learning occurs in moments outside of the classroom, and that’s why we encourage our students to participate in co-curricular opportunities.
