Enable our children to strive to their unique potential in an environment of love, respect and security, “with the knowledge of God’s will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives.” (Col. 1:9)
Provide comprehensive education and formation for our students. Guided by Scripture and fellowship, our students will establish a foundation for life-long achievement as responsible, caring members of our community.
Change the world with the Messiah: one child and one family at a time.
As students transition into adolescence, they go through a period of enormous physiological and emotional development. In keeping with our mission, and with the unique needs of middle school students, we integrate academics with character, social, and leadership development. We challenge our students and care about each one as an individual. Students need strong intellectual opportunities to succeed academically and they need moral and healthy personal development to succeed fully in life.
We emphasize ethical and moral development of our students. This on-going effort happens in class, during chapel, at meals, on adventure walks and during field trips as students serve one another and their community. We work with parents to reinforce ethics, tolerance, respect, honesty and the importance of God’s presence in our lives. In all our endeavors, we encourage students to try new things and explore their interests with the knowledge that they are never alone — we are here to help and we always have their best interests at heart.
High school provides a tremendous opportunity for unique learning endeavors by combining experience-based developmental learning with formal academic disciplines. We partner with local professional and educational enterprises as interdisciplinary resources to create exceptional academic experiences for each student. An atmosphere of joy is noticeable from the moment you step foot on the Messiah campus. In the classroom, you will hear the cheerful buzz of students who are a community in the truest sense of the word. Our students are learning to care for one another and care for their physical space – indoor and outdoor, which creates a feeling of home. The sense of community found here provides security and stability for our students that empowers them to flourish throughout their lives.
