The investment in your child’s K-12 education through private Christian education pays dividends for a lifetime.
We are honored to have the opportunity to foster that investment. It is our goal to provide the highest excellence in education and programming, in a safe and loving environment, while keeping Christian education affordable for everyone in the Sanford and surrounding communities.
Don’t let cost stand in the way of private Christian education for your children. We understand that private school tuition seems like an unfathomable cost for many families, but we offer and support a number of discounts, scholarships and financial aid programs to help keep costs affordable for all.
