Mission For The Class

     Learning is a life long process and is nourished by active 
participation and collaborative efforts. These efforts are grounded in an 
environment rich in mutual respect and Christian values. 
     In order to provide an environment that gives students the means by 
which they may develop a love of learning, one must act as a guide in the 
learning process.  Providing students with opportunities to hypothesize and 
to test their hypotheses across the curriculum will serve as a foundation 
for the development of critical and independent thinkers.
