We believe that God is worthy of our utmost devotion (I John 4:19) and that the Bible is the authoritative Word of God (II Timothy 3:6-7). Therefore, we provide an education where God is glorified as supreme in all areas of life, and we integrate the Bible's teachings into every part of our community.


We believe the Golden Rule implies that we should work for the same educational opportunities for inner-city children as are available to children of wealthier families (Matthew 7:12). Therefore, those who are able joyfully share with the underserved in our midst the resources God has entrusted to them.


We believe God’s purpose is to reconcile all things in heaven and earth under Christ (Colossians 1:19-20).  Therefore, acknowledging historical inequities, we seek to create a school community that reflects the cultural, ethnic, economic and denominational harmony which the Lord desires for the body of Christ. 


We believe God has given each parent or caregiver the primary responsibility for the education of their children (Deuteronomy 6:7).  Therefore, we value parents and caregivers as genuine partners and actively seek to support them and shepherd their involvement in the school whenever possible.


We believe God intends all Christians to live in kinship with one another (John 17:20-23).  Therefore, we desire for our city to view the school as a shared labor of love, providing churches, schools and individuals the opportunity to participate in God’s work in the inner city. 


We believe the historically proven classical approach is the most effective way to educate students. Therefore, we teach classically, using content-rich curriculum, equipping students with essential tools of learning and working with the grain of their intellectual development.
