Portrait of a graduate


We aim to graduate young men and women who think clearly and listen carefully with discernment and understanding, who reason persuasively and articulate precisely, who are capable of evaluating their entire range of experience in light of the Scriptures, and who do so with eagerness in joyful submission to God.

We aspire to find them well-prepared in all situations, possessing both information and the knowledge of how to use it. We desire that they be socially graceful and spiritually gracious, equipped with the tools of learning, desiring to grow in understanding, yet fully realizing the limitations and folly of worldly wisdom.

We expect that graduates are imbued with the unique benefits of attending a school located within the heart of the city: that they possess a growing awareness of a wide range of people and their unique perspectives, that they would be engaged in the fine arts, and that they would appreciate the collective aspects that make up a given culture. Moreover, we desire them to recognize worldly influences as distinct from biblical ones and to be steadfast in their pursuit of good.

We desire that they have hearts that have been wholly transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our hope is that they are joyful believers, eager and equipped to courageously share the gospel with those who are stumbling toward destruction. We desire that they possess all of these things with a demonstrated character, humble attitude and a servant’s heart that seeks to glorify God in all things.
