Meet our Staff

All of our teachers (Grades K-12) hold a minimum of a bachelor’s degree and are certified by both the Mid-South Association of Independent Schools (MAIS) and The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). Our preschool teachers are also highly qualified and hold certification through MAIS.

Each teacher is a professing Christian and a part of a local church of their choice. Our faculty is not only committed to the overall academic advancement of our students, but also to the spiritual growth and development of each student.
