Mission Statement: To provide a safe and fun space for learners to get a well rounded Christ centered education.
Who We Are: A Christian hybrid teaching platform that includes a variety of classes both in-person and online. While the world is teaching our children that genders are subjective, science disproves God’s existence and we need to separate God from schools – we will teach children how to defend their beliefs, that science can coincide with God’s beautiful creation and be able to stand firm in their faith backed by logic, facts and science. As more learners are transferring to online education, there is a lack of Christian courses.
We’ve got you covered! We provide a large variety of engaging core classes including math, reading, science, social studies, history, government and are adding new courses all the time. We foster a strong belief in independence therefore providing many life skill courses including homesteading, financial independence, farming and entrepreneurship. Often children that are brought up in Christian homes still can turn away from God later in life, that is why we offer apologetics courses to build a strong and unshakable foundation.
Statement of Faith: We do not have an official statement of faith as we accept all Christian denominations.
