  • exemplary teachers
  • varied exploratory offerings
  • advanced technology
  • exceptional facilities
  • tuition assistance
  • an unapologetic Christian environment

The Murray Arts Center and Catherine Steele Sewell Stadium are complete. Currently, we are working to raise the funds needed to build additional academic space for our high school. Although the campaign is not about buildings; it is about our steadfast commitment to provide "academic excellence in a Christ-centered environment."
