We do this by providing: *Nursery *Preschool play & learning time *K-1 students with interesting learning experiences *Elementary students with classroom experiences to help foster respect for other adults and students. Our desire is that they would become more mature and more independent in their learning. *Middle school students with opportunities to learn new topics or go deeper in subjects of interest. Our desire is that they would build strong friendships through teamwork, joint experiences, and fellowship times. *High school students with opportunities to build their faith and their transcripts. Our desire is that they would take ownership of their faith, their education, and their service to the Lord through positive peer relationships. They will also have the opportunity to work toward our co-op Excellence Award.
