Our mission is to humbly provide an excellent classical education, challenging students to understand the responsibilities of personal freedom for the purpose of advancing the Kingdom of God.

Our Mission Statement is based on the belief that to whom much is given, much is required.

Only one in seventeen people have the privilege of living in the United States of America, the most prosperous country on earth. As Americans, we enjoy a rich heritage of political and religious liberty and the greatest amount of personal freedom of any people. Our founding fathers declared their firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence and pledged to each other their lives, fortunes, and their sacred honor. We labor to do the same with our students.

We believe that education is discipleship. Therefore, we do not see academics as an end, but as a means of glorifying God through preparing our children for this life, and more so, for eternity.  Our primary focus is for our students to learn a truly biblical worldview within their studies. We believe that the heritage that we have received as followers of Jesus Christ must be preserved, and we teach these principles to our students.

The privileges of a free market economy, personal liberty, and prosperity should also be valued as gifts from God Himself. We should, then, use our wealth and freedom to accomplish God’s eternal purposes. We desire to instill in our students the responsibility to preserve the legacy of what it means to be an American. We train students purposefully in a way that their education will ultimately be used to further the Kingdom of God on earth

We will challenge every student to achieve the highest level of personal discipline, moral development, and dependence upon God.

In America today, and particularly in California, self-proclaimed experts in “progressive” education have drawn up new plans and devised new ways of teaching, abandoning common sense and rejecting the tried-and-true. This is not the case here. We are traditional and classical; some may say old-school, and we like it that way.

Within our students, we strive to develop intellectual and personal habits and skills upon which responsible, independent, and productive lives are built, in the firm belief that such lives are the basis of a free and just society. We endeavor to develop character through both curricular and extracurricular offerings, as well as nurture the child’s humanity — spirit, mind, and body — with a constant view of the potential adult.

The greatest impact we can have upon life is through education. We believe Christian children should be brought up in an environment that acknowledges Almighty God and views every subject from the perspective of Christian Theism. If you want to provide this for your children, we invite you to become part of the Kuyper family.
