The need for good individualized Christian Education in Alexandria was very real, as Christian families were not willing to send their children off to boarding school, thereby breaking the family bond.
The school was started after God gave us the vision to change the youth of Alexandria through the tool of Christian Education, providing options for a better future. The school started off with 10 students in the first year (2002).
Registered with the Department of Education – EMIS Nr. 200601176

Maximum Teacher: Student ratio is 1:18 + Teacher’s aid per learning centre (Multigrades). Teaching focus is more on the learner learning, than on the teacher teaching, using Learning and Teaching materials from Accelerated Christian Education.
Each child advances at his/her own individual pace, according to his/her abilities. Character and Bible training is an integral part of all Curriculum Materials. Because of the different approach to learning, it is not advisable to start working on it later than Grade 6 level.

“No matter what a school may have to offer in the way of an education and good friends and the chance of a good job later, if it is not somehow also a place where student and teacher alike can become more and more of what it means to be truly human, then it is the wrong place for them both because without this all the rest is only business.”
