STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"At Agape Christian School we value small student to teacher ratios. We also value an individualized approach to learning. Many of our students come to us two or three years below their grade level. Students are diagnosed and placed at their ability level so that success can be achieved. With success comes self-confidence and a new thirst for learning."
