Special Guests Get Sneak Peek of New Campus

We loved hosting a "Sneak Peek" cocktail party for major donors at our unfinished campus on April 1! It was an energetic, joyous occasion, catered by none other than our own students through their work in our Life Academy. We hope you'll enjoy these photos of the event. We're headed down the homestretch of the capital campaign, still working hard to raise the final $1,000,000.
