The added component of arts allows scholar to learn multiple forms of creative expression while integrating their core curricular knowledge. The component of Relationships is emphasized both through our Pathway to Purpose program, social-emotional learning, and culturally relevant content threaded into each lesson. Overall, the M.A.S.T.E.R. curriculum is designed to give scholars a holistic education that empowers body, mind, and spirit.
An integral part of propelling our scholars to success is laying a foundation of faith through the integration of Christ-centered, biblical teaching.
