About Us

 A DSCF0821message from the Principal…

If you’re looking for a great school in the Homestead area, you’ve just found it. Our students finish each year one to one and a half academic years ahead of their public/charter school cohorts.  Our teachers are highly qualified with many years of experience in a learning context with children. We engage students’ minds through critical thinking as well as their hearts for spiritual development. We believe that great education involves the whole person. Being good is as important as getting the right answer.
