From the President

The Charles Finney School is in its strongest season ever in regards to enrollment and the financial stability of this institution. Through the generosity of our wonderful donor base, extremely hard working faculty and staff, and of course the wonderful families that make up our community, we are well positioned to take on the future.

The story of our school is permeating our community and people want to be a part of what God is doing in this place. The "Finney Story" was shared at a recent event to many new people who left the night amazed at what has transpired here over the last 20 years. All of the glory goes to God who has been faithful to supply all of our needs.

With all of the good news we remain committed to exploring new ways to be the very best school possible. We understand that we still have work ahead of us. We will not rest on the successes of the past, but continue to improve our academic offerings, upgrade our facility, and ask God for direction on how to meet the spiritual needs of this generation. Stayed tuned, more great changes are coming—and we hope you’ll be a part of them!
