Our Vision for Christian Education

meanddamonThe Living Water School was founded by this devout Christian husband and wife, however, Christianity is not taught formally at The Living Water School.  Instead we have a morning chapel, small group Bible studies, noon time prayer, and we have chosen to focus on creating a school where our belief is lived out and shared in the every day function of the school. Staff members share naturally and lovingly their  Christian beliefs with students and students have the freedom to question and disagree with those beliefs in order to chart their own journey to coming to know the Lord.
