1We believe it is better to build children than repair adults. With Christ as our foundation, we create a vibrant educational environment where children thrive through academic instruction, character development, and spiritual training.

2Relationships are the fabric of our educational community. We believe that students can best pursue educational excellence when they are surrounded by love and encouragement. Thanks to our high teacher-student ratio, we can invest in relationships that affirm the God-given value and uniqueness of each child.

3We’re a PreK-8 school with rural charm nestled in the Finger Lakes region. Located in Tompkins County only minutes from Ithaca, N.Y., our extensive grounds offer children opportunities to explore the outdoors through athletic activities, environmental stewardship, and integrated learning.
