Stone Ridge Christian School started its new academic year on Aug.19th with three full-time and two part-time kindergartners and five elementary students. With two full-time teachers and intermittent helpers from the local Seventh-day Adventist church, the school eagerly embraces its mission of grace centered Christian education based on mutual respect and high academic standards.
The school property is continually being refined into a beautiful, functional and community-friendly environment. Two years ago geo thermal heating and air conditioning were installed. Last year, the ball field was laid out and the years of rock picking finally ended. This year, the ball field has grass and the egg limestone has been packed down and provides a safe solid surface for ball games. The play equipment has also been serviced and painted. Most exciting of all, Stone Ridge’s “Back To Eden Community Garden” has been established and has five plots that have been planted, two that are ready to receive seed and several more plots are under construction. The landscaping is becoming park-like with flower plantings, shade trees and benches. Even if you’ve completed your education, this is a school that’s truly inviting. If you’re in the area, we encourage you to call and make an appointment to stop by. We’d be delighted to show you around and share our excitement about our educational goals and our love for Jesus.
