We are sharing various stories from the Kenya Project Team and their recent trip to Kenya with World Vision. This initiative is successful because of the prayers and support from the Faith Family. Every student at the school has the opportunity to donate $25.00 or more to sponsor a child through World Vision. Our partnership with the village of Bandaptai, Kenya is long term and we hope to make a lasting, positive impact through your support.

The first day of school is almost here! Meet our new teachers in middle school and high school and learn about why they are awesome.
“Why are we building a Greenhouse?” A skeptical 8th grader asks. The purpose of this greenhouse is bigger than the plants, but rather than getting knee deep in a philosophical discussion about best educational practices with a thirteen year old, I instead reply, “It will have fish...” Based on their reaction, the student is satisfied.
