An Affordable Education

 A quality education is without a doubt one of the largest expenses people in today's world face. Running a school requires a lot of money, but it is our desire to make an Adventist education affordable to as many as possible. In fact, our entire school is staffed with volunteers who believe in providing a Christ-centered education at the most reasonable price possible. We are proud to say that our annual tuition and fees are roughly half that found at other private boarding schools.
