The study of music values excellence, commitment, and a constant search for beauty. We are looking for a person who values the same.
About us. We’re growing! We are a young classical Christian school preparing for our fourth year. We started with 18 students in JK-2, and we’re anticipating 80+ students in JK-7 next year. Our community is intimate, we have our own curriculum (not Ontario’s), we’re low on tech (and high on books, art, and nature), and we love the gospel of grace that makes us right with God and one another.
