In preparing students to engage the world with wisdom, compassion, and courage, we seek caring, dedicated faculty and staff who embrace their Christian faith, model Biblical values, share a love for learning and a commitment to excellence, and will nurture and challenge students. Our liberal arts model supports an academically rigorous curriculum, tightly integrated within a Christian worldview.
