Dear Parents and Students:
Welcome to a new year at Faith West. We are a corporate organization governed by a Board of Trustees, made up of pastors and elders. This Board of Trustees has oversight of the administration and other ministries that are essential in carrying out the vision and heart of the organization. Together, we form a solid foundation for all of our Faith West families, and we look forward to partnering with you in the education of your children. We are excited about this ministry opportunity and what God will do in the lives of our Faith West families!
The Faith West mission is “Excellence Without Compromise,” and it is in the “Excellence” that we challenge our students to discover God’s awesome plan for their life, ascertaining all that God intends for them to be. Therefore, our goal is to provide the Christian environment where a biblical worldview is presented so they can discover God’s “Excellence” for their life. Additionally, as a college preparatory school, we pride ourselves in academic excellence and quality education.
We continue to be committed to biblical principles and we are looking forward to a great year of learning and growing together in our Lord. If we may assist you in any way, please do not hesitate to call.
Serving Him with you,
Mary Strickland, Principal
Jeanna Bickerstaff, Assistant Principal
