Mission

The educational philosophy of THRIVE is deeply rooted in the way, the truth, and the life of Jesus Christ as taught in the Bible. We see children as being fearfully and wonderfully made. Children are unique individuals, each with their own gifts, learning styles, and needs. As a learning support to parents, we will strive to educate through varied teaching methods and a variety of learning tools structured around the student’s learning style and needs. Our small, structured learning environment will promote God centered education, improve parent/child relationship, self-discipline, motivation, and excellence in learning.

  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
