A Note from Our Board Chair

Peter Schuurman, Board Chair

Our Christian school is a tremendous gift and task from God. Its foundational philosophy is derived from a Biblical custom in which parents are responsible to raise their children in the tradition of their fathers and mothers—specifically the covenant of faith in God as Creator, Sustainer, and Redeemer of the whole world. Parents with this same passion pool their resources of time, energy, and finances to hire teachers, staff, and administrators to teach their children according to that philosophy of life at the Christian school.

If you are interested in becoming more deeply involved in our school—as a parent or community supporter—please contact me or any board member listed on this webpage. We have a new Strategic Plan that we are just beginning to implement this year, and it solidifies our commitment to a stable and innovative educational environment.

Our school is as rich, exciting, faithful, and creative as the parents who direct and protect it with their wisdom and skills. We want to see our children and the school be "salt and light" in our town and to the world, and by God’s grace and our obedience to his life-giving ways, we are privileged to be a part of that educational process. It is both hard work and a deep delight. Few things are more rewarding than seeing children flourish in a community of care, creativity, and constant challenge.

Grace and peace,

Peter Schuurman
