“A ship is always safe at the shore, but that is NOT what it is built for.” -Albert Einstein

We are thrilled to welcome our Magnificent Middle School Scholars to their engaging educational environment.

Our instructional design is collaboratively constructed from the following belief statements:

Every Middle School Scholar is specifically created by God in His image.
Every Middle School Scholar is creative, curious and designed to learn.
Every Middle School Scholar has more “moving parts” than “sitting still” parts.
Every Middle School Scholar possesses enormous potential and holds the key to unlock it.
Every Middle School Scholar will rise to the level of TFA’s Christ-centered, College-preparatory mission expectations.

It’s time to set sail on our extraordinary educational journey.
“Anchors Aweigh!”
