How can we help equip our kids to have a Christian worldview in an increasingly secularized culture? Join us on November 14 to hear from author, singer, and apologist Alisa Childers. She will share tips about how Christian parents can teach their kids discernment by exposing them to bad ideas in an age-appropriate manner and teaching them to analyze media from a biblical perspective. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required. Please use this link to secure your registration https://wheaton.typeform.com/alisachilders.
A Welcome from our Principal
This week has been full of excitement, fun, and learning. From Freshman Orientation to the first day of classes, to the Connect Retreats and special assemblies, we are thrilled to have our students back on campus for the new school year! As we seek to build community, we look forward to seeing students pursue excellence both inside and outside the classroom. Our prayer is that we will be a community that serves others. Ultimately, we want to see our students grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ this year, so that God may be given glory in all that happens here.
If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please don’t hesitate to contact me or someone on our team. We are grateful for you! – Kori Hockett
