Around the Campus

The campus is modest, with two current buildings and a five-acre plot of land. But looks can be deceiving. The University Model format provides great efficiency, in that only half of the K-12 students and teachers are usually on campus at any one time. This means the buildings and grounds support twice the number of students of a conventional five-day-per-week school.
