Sandy Gibbs

Admin Assistant


Our faculty and staff are truly dedicated to the children that roam our halls. We have an incredibly low turnover rate, which means our students grow up with the same Christ-centered influences in their life.

Beyond Teaching

Faculty pray with their students. Administration pray with their faculty. Our team is driven to make a difference in every individual, whether they are a toddler, a teenager, or a parent.

Degreed & Certified

All of our teachers have 4 year degrees from accredited colleges/universities. In addition, the majority of our upper school faculty have Master’s degrees, which allow them to teach at a (truly) college level.

Teachers that are mentors.

Mr. Harrell

As the Advanced Technology Instructor, Mr. Harrell finds fun and unique ways to make our tech-native students even more tech-savvy.
