The Christian Academy offers a three-dimensional program of education for it's students. It consists of a Spiritual Development program, an Academic Development Program, and a Student Activity Program. Each one of these programs serves to meet our mission statement, "...that which ultimately benefits the student. Our goal is to prepare each student to live a life of value and meaning to God, society, and self."
CAGSL was beneficial to Trenton because it offered smaller class sizes. It also offered a great high school experience allowing students from several grade levels to socialize so older peers can be positive examples for younger peers. We realized that public school would not suit Trenton's needs and we are thankful for the opportunity to be able to send him there. He also developed an even closer relationship to God and met many people that will continue to enhance that relationship for a life-time. He has met life-long friends that he is still very good friends with at this time. We are so thankful for what the school offered as it was the perfect fit for Trenton during his transitional time of young life. We really are grateful for the high school experience that CAGSL provided for our son.
