Excellence for All
Students are challenged academically with a diverse offering of subjects and advanced courses that meet their needs. Students can earn college credits through Advanced Placement and honors courses and dual enrollment through partnerships with Willamette University and Chemeketa Community College.
A Way of Life
We foster relationships with our families and students through open communication and opportunities for families to be involved on our campus: we view parents as equal partners in their child’s education. Students are offered a balanced curriculum that integrates faith, culture, service and life.
Not "Just" Teachers
Faculty are hand-picked to provide students with the support they need to grow, and the experiences they need to learn. The small class sizes allow teachers to build relationships with their students and offer engaging instruction, instilling a passion for lifelong learning.
Learning Beyond the Classroom
At every grade level, students have opportunities to grow as stewards of their world through a variety of co-curricular activities, including community service, athletics, leadership, the arts, campus ministries, and clubs. Students are only limited by their time and interests and are encouraged to step outside of their comfort zones.
21st Century Environment
There is something for everyone on our 22 acre campus. Our facilities provide students with the tools they need to thrive as they learn, play, and socialize. We integrate modern technology through our MakerSpace, Activity Board classrooms and labs, and top-quality athletic facilities.
