Many of our families live here in Salinas while others commute from as far north as Hollister and as far south as King City. Our elementary/junior high school is an architectural jewel rooted in the community for 75 years. In 2015, we opened our progressive preschool that educates and fosters the growth 3 and 4-year-olds and prepares them for kindergarten. Our commitment is to develop every preschool through eighth-grade student for higher education, for life, and Heaven.
