We recognize that your children’s education is a big decision. We like to call our Admissions Process our “Discernment Process”. Our hope is for this process to be informative, inspiring, and reflective. We believe the wisdom to guide this decision comes from prayer and the right discussions, and we’re here to walk alongside you during your discernment process.
