OUR MISSION

We are on a mission to raise up Christ-like leaders who are a light in the world. “Petite Lumière” means “little light.” We encourage our students to be a light wherever they go - in their school, their families, their friendships, and their sports teams. Children may be little, but their life has immeasurable worth and value with the ability to positively change the world. 

OUR IMPACT

We accomplish our mission by impacting one child, one parent, and one teacher at a time. The intentional care we provide for each person in the educational community sets us apart as a school.

We value every “one” and believe:

  • One child who grows in wisdom, stature, and favor will be a light in the world.

  • One parent who feels seen, supported, and connected will be a light in the world.

  • One teacher who is loved, valued, and believed in will be a light in the world.

OUR CULTURE

We value and protect these truths within our school community. Each standard is foundational when we onboard new families, hire educators, and evaluate the success of our school. 

 

We Preach the Gospel: In our songs, our curriculum, with our words and with our lives. We celebrate and share the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ in a way people can understand.

 

We Are Planted in Church: Active involvement in a local church is how we stay healthy spiritually and connected relationally. 

We Lead Like Champions: Our confidence and competence is not based on our skill and talent, but on the glorious victory of our Savior Jesus Christ. We stand tall in that victory. Even our youngest children know: “I’m a leader, people follow me, I make wise decisions.”

We Serve the Whole Family: Exceptional care goes beyond the child. Parent involvement is key to educational success. We believe families thrive in a life-giving community where parents feel encouraged and equipped.

We Believe the Best in Each Other: Our parents, teachers, and administration partner together in a positive way to support the growth and development of our students. We communicate collaboratively with grace, encouragement and understanding. 

We Continually Grow: Our curriculum, events, and conversations are designed to help us grow in all areas of life. We love learning and strive to become better students, teachers, and parents every day. 

 

We Respect Each Other's Time: Our school hours are designed to protect times of rest and encourage a healthy work life balance. 

We Dress For Success: Our appearance reflects the spirit of excellence and professionalism that our school carries. 

We Create a Safe Environment: Our words, our staff, our policies and procedures ensure the physical and emotional safety of the people we serve.

We Speak the Truth in Love: We don’t shy away from conversations that make us better. We call each other higher and speak honestly with a heart of compassion.

We Value a Child's God-given Identity: God wonderfully and immutably created each child as male or female to reflect the image of God. We raise our children to be in alignment with who God says they are.

We Love What We Get to Do: It is our greatest joy and honor to be trusted with raising up the next generation.

our team

PL CREST.png

As we began to build this school, we prayed for teachers who were overqualified and passionate about raising up Christ-like leaders. We searched high and low for people who would carry our vision with excellence and ownership. The team we built is truly special. We can’t wait for you to meet them!
