Let us run with endurance the race set before us,
fixing our eyes on Jesus
who is the author and finisher of our faith.
Hebrews 12: 1,2

Spring Retreat - Lent - Every Step I Take

Every move I make, I make in You
You make me move Jesus
Every breath I take, I breathe in You
Every step I take, I take in You
You are my way Jesus
Every breath I take I breathe in You
Waves of mercy, Waves of grace
Everywhere I look, I see your face
Your love has captured me, Oh, my God this love
How can it be?
April 1, 2022

OPEN HOUSE - There will be an open house for those interested in enrolling or possibly enrolling their children in preschool through 8th grade. It will be Thursday, April 7th from 6:30-7:30 PM. There will be more information about our expansion to 8th grade and what our middle school program will look like this fall. Current families - please bring a friend and spread the word!

LUCK OF THE IRISH - At this time I can tell you that we did as well or possibly even better than previous years. We sold 646 raffle tickets which is amazing!!! More details coming soon.

AGREEMENTS for 2022-2023
  • If you are applying for financial aid, your agreements will be set up after you have completed the financial aid process and after you have been awarded a scholarship. This will likely be the end of April.
  • If you are not applying for financial aid, you will soon be receiving an email from TADS to set up your agreement/payment plan.

Sorry about any confusion this has caused.
