Our mission statement calls us to partner together (school, church, and home) to help our students develop their unique gifts and abilities. We want our students to explore all kinds of vocations and find one that fits best with their God-given gifts. We hope students will find careers that use their gifts to in response to God’s love, allowing their work to be their worship. Read more >> about Kingdom Work: Discovering our Vocational Calling
Being a bit wiser and definitely older, I wish I could go back in time to thank some of the people who made an impact on who I am today. One of the people who taught me about student well-being is Ralph Honderd. Coach Honderd was my track coach my senior year at Calvin College. My college track career to that point was pretty non-descript.
